The Okemo Valley Women's Club is again sponsoring the Tree of Remembrance, a community holiday tree that honors and remembers relatives, friends and loved ones.
A combination holiday symbol, personal memorial and fundraiser, the Tree of Remembrance will be lit on December 11 at 6 p.m., in conjunction with an open house and silent auction at the Fletcher Memorial Library on the Ludlow green. This fundraiser goes towards the scholarships that the club offers to Black River Seniors.
To honor or remember someone with a light, send a donation to the GFWC Ludlow Okemo Valley Women's Club c/o Rita Higgins, 94 Main St., Ludlow, VT, 05149.
