BERLIN — All are cordially invited to honor and remember their deceased loved ones and friends during this holiday season through the Facebook Live Online AVH Auxiliary Christmas Memory Tree Lighting Program to be held on Monday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m.
No in-person event will be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the online ceremony streamed live on Androscoggin Valley Hospital's Facebook page, staff will read memorialized names and a poem, light the Memory Tree, then AVH volunteer Angela Brown will play Christmas songs on her piano from her home. A keepsake booklet will be available upon request.
