Tree to be lit as holiday memorial

GALWAY – The Galway Lioness Club of Lions District 20-Y2 is sponsoring the 19th annual memory tree in the village of Galway Park near the band stand.

The memory tree will be lit with bulbs donated by individuals who want to remember loved ones during the Christmas season.

Bulbs can be purchased for a $1 donation a year.

A list of names of those to be remembered will be posted in a memory tree book in a special case at the gazebo in the village park.

To buy a bulb, send your name and phone number, the name for the memory tree book and your name and phone number to the Galway Lioness Club, P.O. Box 502, Galway, NY 12074, Attention Memory Tree 2013.

Names can be submitted through Dec. 23.

The tree lighting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday in the park. The memory tree will be lit through Jan. 1, 2014.

Proceeds from the memory tree will benefit the Galway Lioness Club Community Fund.
