New Hampshire has long enjoyed a tradition of caring. That generosity of spirit has become abundantly clear in the years since 1995 when The Amherst Garden Club introduced the first Memory Tree. In the 25 years that have followed, donations to the Memory Tree situated on the village green, have not only honored important people in our lives, but have also helped support many worthwhile causes. The Memory Tree is a living tribute that benefits present and future generations. It is among the most treasured of memorial gifts.
On December 4th, 2020 “Sweet Baby Blue Eyes” will be illuminated for the 2020 holiday season. The little spruce tree planted across from the Brick School, will be adorned with hundreds of tiny white lights, each light representing someone near and dear that has died.
For a small donation to The Amherst Garden Club, $10.00 for an individual, $25.00 for a family, you may have loved ones remembered. The deadline to register is December 1. The names of those remembered will be displayed on a board placed near the tree and published in the Amherst Citizen.
Each year, money donated is used to fund a worthy community cause that aligns with the mission of the Amherst Garden Club. The club’s mission is to provide education, resources, and networking opportunities while promoting the love of gardening, civic landscaping, and environmental responsibility.
