Cambridge Life: 12/6/07 Cambridge Life: 12/6/07

The Tree of Remembrance lights up the village (Photo: John Carlson)

The front lawn of the Rice Mansion Inn was the place to be on Tuesday night. All weekend I watched as Geoff Hoffer and Matt Pender raised the beautiful 25' tree from Bailey's Tree Farm, in anticipation of the tree lighting ceremony. laid plans, as they say. On Monday night we had ferocous winds and the tree fell over. No worry! Friends from the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department helped right the tree.

Father Paul blessed the tree. He called it a Tree of Remembrance, a place to honor those who have touched our lives. Red ribbons are used to decorate the tree. The ribbons are available at the Rice Mansion Inn. Your $1.00 donation goes directly to the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, or Kwanza, you can honor your loved ones, past and present, and help support the men and women of the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department, who risk their lives to keep us safe.

Happy Holidays from the Cambridgebuzz!
