2022 Tree of Life Ornament & Ceremonies

Every year during the holiday season, HomeCare & Hospice Foundation holds their Treeof Life Ceremonies as a special way to remember and honor lost loved ones. This year, a beautifully designed pewter-finish village scene can be engraved to an individual’s liking. Ceremonies will be held in Batavia, Arcade, Olean and through the virtual means where communities can come together to put their ornaments on trees.

“We understand the holidays can be a difficult time for families who may have lost a loved one so we always want to make sure we can come together and remember and honor them,” said Melissa Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer of HomeCare & Hospice. “It’s a great way to connect with those in our service areas to let them know we are here for them.”

The 2022 ornament is $20, with engraving and can be displayed at the Tree of Life ceremony of your choice, picked up at a HomeCare & Hospice office, or shipped directly to you for an additional $5 per ornament.
