Blessing Tree


December 4, 2017 - 12:00 AM

Ashley Nelson hangs an ornament in honor of her grandfather, Raymond Dix, on the Blessing Tree that stands on the bandstand on the courthouse square. Jessica Oswald read the names of those who are dealing with or succumbed to Alzheimer’s or cancer while Nelson and Christopher Holloway hung ornaments. Wings of Warriors and Humanity House organized the recognition. At 4 o’clock next Saturday the ritual will be repeated, giving those who may want to add a loved one’s name the chance to do so.  REGISTER/SUSAN LYNN
