As we are rapidly approaching the Festive Season, the Annual Rotary Christmas Tree of Remembrance will officially be launched this coming Friday 10th December in the Letterkenny Shopping Centre with an Ecumenical Blessing at 11.45am.
As before, dedications in the form of yellow ribbons can be made in return for a donation. A dedication may be for your own personal intention, for someone who is ill, who has passed away or just simply someone you want to remember now at this special time of year.
If anyone is dubious of making a personal visit to the tree in light of current Covid virus transmissions, then visit the Virtual Christmas Tree on the following link: http://letterkennyrotaryclub.givingtrees.ie/
This Virtual tree gives you the opportunity to write your messages and, if you wish, you can even share your message with family and friends via email, whatsapp messaging to let them know, no matter where you are or they are in the world, they are in your thoughts.
All the messages from the virtual tree will be added to the ribbons from the physical tree for a Blessing in the new year at an Ecumenical Service when Covid restrictions will permit.
All the donations will support the ongoing work of the St Vincent de Paul Society, Letterkenny Dyslexia Association and Rotary International Charities who are all struggling to maintain their much needed services, particularly this year as no face to face collections were permissible, so your donation to the Tree will make a huge difference.
The tree will be in the usual place on the central aisle from Friday until Christmas Eve, so drop in and make your dedication in total confidence. Covid restrictions will be adhered to.
