Northfield Hospice to Create Tree of Remembrance

Northfield Hospice invites you to pay tribute to someone special in your life and make the season brighter by adding lights to its “Tree of Remembrance.”

Kathy Blomquist, Director of Northfield Hospice, said a decorated tree at Northfield Hospital will symbolize gratitude for those who have meaning to us and have made a difference in our lives.

“This can serve as a memorial to someone you miss, a tribute to a special person in your life or a “thank you” for service or kindness,” she said.

Individuals and families can purchase a single light for $10 or a string of lights for $100. Funds raised from this event will be used in the hospice program to support those with life-limiting illnesses. Forms are available at Northfield Homecare & Hospice, 700 Division, or online at

The tree will be lit at a special ceremony Tuesday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. in Northern Lights Café at Northfield Hospital. There will be a short outdoor service, a time for reflection and refreshments. The Northfield Youth Chorus will provide music for the occasion.

“The holidays are a marking point where we remember those who have made a difference in our lives,” Blomquist said. “This event will be a tangible way of honoring those we care about.”
