FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary once again has a Remembrance Tree with decorations to be purchased “in memory of” or “in honor of” one or more individuals for a nominal fee. This tree in the hospital lobby shows the names of the dedications, as well as the donors who made the gift. Proceeds benefit the hospital’s auxiliary, according to a news release from the hospital.

Recently, the dedication and lighting ceremony of the Remembrance Tree took place along with caroling and music by Sammie Angel. “The ceremony is an opportunity to remember loved ones who have passed on and to honor those special people in our lives who are still with us,” said Auxiliary President Dawn Girardin in the release.

To order a decoration, send the name of the person it is to be “in memory of” or “in honor of” to Jean Rand, 725 Orchard Drive, Wilton ME 04294; or Mary Harris, 67 Cape Cod Hill Road, in New Sharon, ME 04955. Enclose a check payable to the FMH Auxiliary for the total decorations purchased. The cost is $5 for each decoration ordered.

Forms to order decorations are also available in the hospital’s gift shop, near the main entrance. For additional information, call Jean Rand at 645-4823 or Mary Harris at 778-2366.
