A donation to the Memory Tree, with its little white lights, acts as a remembrance of a loved one. Located on the town green right in the center of town, it is an Amherst tradition and twinkling reminder to all who pass by of the person and the times shared. The lights on the Memory Tree will be lit on Friday, December 7th, the weekend of the Tree Lighting Festival and will stay lit through the cold winter nights into January. .
The Amherst Garden Club has donated the money raised each year (around $1,000.00) to various projects around Amherst and the local area. We are happy to announce that the donations this year from the Memory Tree will be going to SHARE. We know they will put the money to good use.
