On Saturday, Dec. 7, local Rotarians will debut The Rotary Tree of Remembrance at Cordova Mall. During the Christmas season, the families of our community will have the opportunity to place a ribbon with the name of a loved one or message on the tree. Ribbons will be provided and volunteers will be on hand to assist in creating the messages. The tree will remain on display through Dec. 24. The ribbons will then be displayed at an Ecumenical Service at Sacred Heart Hospital Conference Center on Jan. 4 at 10:30am.
This project is a Rotary International community-service initiative provided by the Rotary E-Club of South East USA and the Caribbean, Cordova Rotary Club and the Combined Rotary Clubs of Pensacola (CROP). Participants are invited to make the donation of their choice for the ribbons and all proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart, Gulf Coast Kids House, Covenant Hospice, Simon Youth Foundation, and Rotary Local Charities.
