Brazosport Regional Volunteers Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Tree of Remembrance
Brazosport Regional Volunteers is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Tree of Remembrance Ceremony on Thursday, December 3 at 6:00 PM. Memorial gifts provide an enduring way to celebrate the life of a person who has touched your life. In turn, your action goes on to improve the lives of others.
The Tree of Remembrance Ceremony began in 1985 when volunteer Bettie Ross created a memorial service to recognize deceased volunteers. Mrs. Ross envisioned having a tree with white lights shining brightly in front of the hospital and designating a light for each volunteer. What started out as a small 6 foot tree is now a 25 foot tree that lights up the front of the hospital all month long.
Now, the Tree of Remembrance has grown to provide donors the opportunity to remember an individual with a gift upon the person’s death, birthday, or anniversary. A memorial gift honors a loved one’s life and serves to reflect upon the memories that live forever. At the same time, a memorial gift also helps improve healthcare in our community. With just a $5 or more contribution, a light will be placed on a tree for your honoree.
This unique way to donate works to improve the lives of all community members. Please join the Brazosport Regional Volunteers to celebrate 30 Years of the Tree of Remembrance on Thursday, December 3 at 6:00 PM in the main lobby. Holiday entertainment and refreshments will be provided. To create a lasting memorial for someone, please call the Auxiliary Office at 979-285-1185.
