24th ANNUAL MEMORY TREE 2019
The Whiting Volunteer Fire Department established the Whiting Memory tree 24 years ago to honor the memory of Vicki Grandchamp, a Whiting teenager who died in an accident. It has become a community event for all who wish to remember those who have died, by purchasing one or more lights on the memory tree.
How can you participate? Individual lights may be purchased on the Tree in memory of a loved one. Lights are $1, and you may purchase as many as you wish, including more than 1 light per individual. Names of those being remembered will be published, and also posted at the Town Clerk’s Office. Those having more than one bulb purchased will be indicated in this manner: John Doe (3), Jane Doe (2).
December 4th- To be assured of inclusion in the reading of the names ceremony and the Town Report, we need to receive your names and check no later than December 4th. This annual event benefits the Fire Department, adds a beautiful lighted tree to the community and allows you to remember a loved one in a meaningful way. This event has come to provide a “coming together” of the community for an evening of remembering and celebrating.
