Tree of Life

On Wednesday evening, December 6, 2017, friends, families and colleagues gathered at the Palisades Center in West Nyack to remember our loved ones and to light the Trees of Life. We are tremendously grateful to Dr. Clement Osei (pictured above with Kathy Bookman, Director of Development, Amy Stern CEO,  and Sarah Henry, Special Events Coordinator) for sharing his family’s hospice experience with those gathered at the Tree Lighting ceremony. The Nyack Community Chorus entertained the group with their lovely selection of musical pieces and our guests then enjoyed a delicious dessert buffet. Thank you to all who attended!

The trees were on display from November 26th through December 24th.  Our dedicated group of volunteers manned the Tree of Life table every day and evening selling stars.  The Tree of Life is one of United Hospice of Rockland's most successful fundraisers and a wonderful way to honor our loved ones who are no longer with us.
