Community Memorial Tree Friday

The holidays can be hard for those who have lost loved ones. Hospice of Spokane's Community Memorial Tree allows folks who have lost loved ones to decorate paper doves in their memory.

The doves are then hung on a beautiful tree. Last year, more than 1,000 of our community members made doves for the tree.

There is no cost to create the dove on the memorial tree which will be on display Dec. 9 through Dec. 18.

The opening ceremony is tomorrow at 10 at River Park Square, third level.

But you can create your memorial dove anytime from Dec.10 until the 18. Hospice folks will be at the tree to assist with the doves and also talk about services available from Hospice of Spokane.
