LACONIA — The LRGH Auxiliary Tree of Love is offered every holiday season, and involves placing an angel, decorated by local school children, on a tree displayed in the LRGH Atrium.
The highlight of the Tree of Love is the remembrance service, which includes the reading of names on each angel hanging on the tree.
"The Tree of Love is one of our most popular and rewarding fundraising efforts," says LRGH Auxiliary President Nancy Paterno. "The holiday season is a time to celebrate family and friends, past and present and the Tree of Love is a great way to remember and honor our loved ones. Personally, I have more than a dozen angels on the tree, including three for very special family pets."
The Remembrance Service will take place on Thursday, December 12 at 1 p.m. in the atrium at LRGH, and all are welcome to attend.
If you would like to purchase an angel for the Tree of Love, visit the LRGH Gift Shop. Angels are $3 each, and proceeds benefit the LRGH Auxiliary to help fund programs and services at LRGHealthcare, which benefit the community. Any questions, call the LRGH Auxiliary Gift Shop at 524-3211, ext. 3172.
