Community Care's Memory Tree
While shopping at Books & Company, patrons will be able to take a moment to hang an ornament on the Christmas Memory Tree.
L-R Edith Morash, Community Care board member, Alexandra Bake, Books & Company, and Barbara Lyons from Community Care admire the Christmas Memory Tree located in the bookstore.
Amid the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and preparations, the Memory Tree stands to collect ornaments hung in a quiet moment of reflection and celebration of the life of someone being remembered in this season. People are invited to make a donation to Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors and then choose an ornament and place it on the Memory Tree.
Ken Noble, past chair of Community Care's board of directors, says, "we owe much appreciation to Alexandra Bake and David Sweet for their support of this fundraising venture. Both seniors and business owners in the town benefit when seniors can continue to live at home."
Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors has been supporting seniors to live independently at home since 1977. Services include Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments & shopping, noon-time dinners for seniors, help with forms, reassurance programs, homemaking, yard work and home maintenance. The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care through the Local Health Integration Network and supported by donations and community fundraising efforts. The office is located in The Armoury, 206 Main Street, in Picton.
