The Tree of Angels is once again gracing the front lobby of the St Marys Hospital. Three years ago friends and colleagues Colleen Frayne and Marilyn Mongeon, came together with an idea of a giving tree where the community could show their kindness to others in need at Christmas by the giving of gifts. This simple tree with precious, colourful angels adoring its branches is in memory of Cohen Frayne, a young child who embodied the spirit of sharing with others. The angels are labelled for boy or girl and have age ranges listed on them to help with the various needs of the community. Please take an angel from the tree and return it with an unwrapped gift to the St Marys Hospital by December 12th. The gifts will be collected and are distributed locally through the Salvation Army Christmas Drive. The Salvation Army is still in need of volunteers for the Christmas kettle drive, if interested please contact the Salvation Army for details on how to help.
