25 Years Honoring Those in Recovery and Commemorating Lives Lost
The Council and PRO-ACT announce the 25th annual dedication of the Tree of Hope.
This time of year, a time of reflection and remembrance, gratitude and unconditional love, we hold close to our loved ones and the memories of those who have graced our lives with their unique beauty. The Tree of Hope is a time for us each to recognize those in our lives who are thriving in recovery or still struggling with addiction, and to commemorate those who have lost their lives to this stigmatized, misunderstood disease.
Featuring music by Cordus Mundi, fellowship, and light refreshments, the highlight of the evening includes the perso
nal testimonies by those touched by addiction, loss and recovery. Speakers give firsthand testimonies of gratitude for their own recovery, for those who helped in achieving sobriety, and most tragically for those who lost their lives to this disease. Personalized ornaments can be ordered prior to the event bearing the names or initials of people being honored, and are hung on the 18-foot tree during the ceremony.
You can order an ornament here to honor your loved one. You will find also the option to underwrite a star. We offer these stars to those who cannot afford to order a star for their honoree. Whether you attend the event, or not, your dedication will be hung on the tree throughout the holiday season. Should you attend, you will honor your loved one by personally placing the ornament in its place.
Executive Director of The Council, Bev Haberle, said, "as this event has grown in size over the past 25 years, I am still so very touched by the individuals who bravely present their personaltestimonies, often through their own pain. Seeing so many members of our community adversely affected by addiction is tempered by the power of all of those working toward and in recovery."
