Genesis Remembrance Tree Benefits Hospice Care
The holidays are a special time for family gatherings and remembering those who have passed. The Genesis Remembrance Tree in Davenport will celebrate the memories of loved ones and focus attention on the continuing need for access to quality hospice care in the region.
The Genesis Remembrance Tree in Davenport will be illuminated in a ceremony on Wednesday, Nov. 14 starting at 6 p.m. in Bechtel Park at River Drive and Iowa Street. This will be the 15th annual lighting of the Remembrance Tree.
Musical entertainment will be provided by the Ellis Kell Winter Blues All-Stars.
Individual “light” sponsors are invited to make a donation of $10 or more in memory of loved ones. All proceeds will benefit Genesis Hospice Care.
