Hospice remembers those who have passed

The Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice (RAVNAH) will host their annual Tree of Remembrance Tree Lighting Ceremony and Memorial Service on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. at the Franklin Conference Center in Rutland. The Tree of Remembrance is a time for community members to gather with others to remember and honor someone who has died.

The service includes music by Trillium, RAVNAH's Hospice chorus and harpist Florence Boutwell; reflections by RAVNAH staff, clergy and caregivers; and the reading of names of this year's hospice patients and other community members.  

If you plan to attend and would like to have a name read at the service, please call 802-770-1516.

RAVNAH's Hospice program advocates quality end-of-life care for terminally ill patients and their families.
