Tree of Remembrance calls for community submissions

CASTLETON— The Castleton Woman’s Club and the Castleton Free Library are once again collaborating for the lighting of the Tree of Remembrance. All are invited to this ceremony, which will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 12 beginning at 6 p.n. at the Castleton Free Library. The library is located at 638 Main Street, Castleton.

The tree will be lit with thousands of bulbs in remembrance of loved ones who are no longer with us. Lights may be purchased to honor loved ones, as well. Anyone can send in names of those they wish to honor or memorialize during the 2018 holiday season. There is no limit to the number of honorees.

Forms are available from members of the Castleton Woman’s Club or pick them up at various locations in Castleton and Fair Haven, including local libraries, laundromats, the post offices, Castleton Village Store, Third Place Pizza, Shaw’s, Castleton Family Health, Castleton Community Center, Castleton Beauty Shop, Prunier’s, Sunrise Restaurant, Wooden Soldier, and Birdseye Diner.

Once the form is filled out, please send it along with a check to Rosie Doran at 550 Doran Road, Fair Haven, VT 05743. Checks are to be made payable to the Castleton Woman’s Club. Donations help fund local scholarships.

Join on Dec. 12 for an old-fashioned community gathering featuring children’s stories and singing and the lighting of the Tree of Remembrance. Following the lighting will be hot chocolate and treats inside the library.

For more information, call Jan at the Castleton Free Library, at 802-468-5574.
