Hospice ?Tree of Love? honors family members

Lee County Health Department Hospice has been helping families honor and remember their loves with their Tree of Love since 1992. The 2017 ornament is ?The Cardinal,? designed by Mystic Images, and can be purchased to be displayed on one of the area?s three trees. When purchased, the name of the person to be honored or remembered will be printed on a decorative tag and attached to the ornament.

The ornaments will be displayed on the Hospice Tree of Love located either in the Unity Point Health-Keokuk lobby, the Ft. Madison Pilot Grove Savings Bank lobby, or Ft. Madison Community Hospital lobby from Nov. 28 to Jan. 2. The unveiling ceremonies are on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 11 a.m. in the Unity Point Health Keokuk lobby; 2 p.m. in the Ft. Madison Pilot Grove Savings Bank lobby; and 3 p.m. at Ft. Madison Community Hospital lobby. The public is invited to attend the ceremony.
