Community Invited to Remember Loved Ones with Tree of Love Ornament

PALMER — As the holiday season approaches, the Baystate Wing Auxiliary has created a unique and lasting way to remember loved ones. A Tree of Love has been set up in the lobby on the second floor, upon which special personalized ornaments can be placed in honor and memory of family and friends.

“There is a definite comfort in coming together with others to remember someone, especially during the holidays,” said Teresa Grove, president of the Auxiliary and Philanthropy officer for the Baystate Health Eastern Region, which includes Baystate Mary Lane and Baystate Wing Hospital. “We are extremely thankful to our auxiliary members for their continued dedication to our hospital and our communities.”

The ornaments are offered for $5 each. All proceeds raised by the Baystate Wing Auxiliary are used to help purchase needed equipment and other items for the benefit of patients of the hospital.

“The Tree of Love is our annual tradition that warms our hearts as we remember loved ones and celebrate their lives,” said Carol Doyle, member of the auxiliary.

For more than 65 years, the auxiliary has been actively supporting Baystate Wing Hospital through its sponsorship of special events and management of the gift shop. For more information about the Tree of Love or to purchase an ornament, stop by the Baystate Wing Hospital Gift Shop or call Carol Doyle at (413) 267-9219.
