St. Augustine Community Hospice remembrance event Tuesday
By The Record
St. Augustine Community Hospice & Palliative Care’s Annual Tree of Life and Candlelight Service of Remembrance will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
This is the organization’s 29th event, and first in St. Augustine, to remember loved ones who passed away as the holidays near. The remembrance is open to the public for a night of “music, verse, and reflection,” whether they were a patient of St. Augustine Community Hospice & Palliative Care or not.
The event will be at the Stephen R. Chapman Family Community Campus, 1355 U.S. 1 South.
“For 29 years, this beautiful and inspiring tribute to our loved ones has brought such joy and comfort to our community,” said Susan Ponder-Stansel, president and CEO of Community Hospice & Palliative Care, in a release. “I’m excited because we have our Chapman Family Community Campus, we can now expand the Tree of Life and Candlelight Service of Remembrance to St. Johns County so they can now experience the celebration.”
Attendees are asked to bring photos of loved ones. Parking is available at Destiny International Church and shuttles will be provided.
