Lutheran Hospital Remembers Loved Ones with Personalized Ornaments on Public Display

Ornaments to decorate holiday tree near main lobby

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012) – Memorial ornaments will once again adorn a Remembrance Tree at Lutheran Hospital this upcoming holiday season. The annual Remembrance Tree display provides the entire community with a touching way to commemorate loved ones who are gone but not forgotten.

The public is invited to place a personalized ornament on the tree Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A special dedication will take place in the hospital’s main lobby at 12:45 p.m. The names of loved ones will be read at that time.

Volunteers will paint a family member or friend’s name on the ornament which is provided free of charge. People can opt to write a note to or about the loved one that will be placed inside their ornament.

Special ornaments will also be available in memory of fallen heroes from the armed forces, fire department or police department. Each ornament will remain on the tree until shortly after the new year, at which time they may be picked up at Lutheran and taken home as a memento.

K105 FM on-air personality Dude Walker is excited to return again to help decorate ornaments and greet guests. Area choirs and musicians will share songs of the season throughout the morning. Nurses from Lutheran Hospital help plan this special activity annually. 

This is the fourth year for the Remembrance Tree event at Lutheran. The public may call 260.435.7704 for more information.
