WestCare Hospice sponsors Tree of Remembrance

Written by 

During this busy holiday season, WestCare Hospice invites the community to take a moment and remember loved ones who have shaped your memories of this special time of year.

The public can express their memories by making a gift to the hospice program now serving families in Jackson, Haywood, Macon, Swain and Graham counties. Their gifts will make the Tree of Remembrance come alive with decorations and lights for all to enjoy. Gifts will also support the vital work of hospice as it provides care and support to individuals and their families who are coping with cancer or another life threatening illness.

The WestCare Home Health & Hospice office tree will be displayed Nov. 29 through Dec. 3 at Sylva Plaza. Butterfly ornaments will be available for purchase/donation in the office from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Drop by the lobby of MedWest-Harris or MedWest-Swain and see the Tree of Remembrance decorated with butterflies from Nov. 29 through Christmas. The name of a loved one will appear on every butterfly.

MedWest and family members will remember all past and present loved ones during a special ceremony at 6 p.m. Dec. 2 in the MedWest-Harris lobby.

For more information on any of these events call 828.586.7410.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
