Collection of memories raises $213

Andreas Feller, owner of Blumen Garden Bistro presents $213.95 from the 2010 Community Care Christmas Memory Tree to Maureen Finnegan and Edith Morash, board members of Community Care for Seniors. One lucky donor, Claudia McCabe, received dinner for two at Blumen, compliments of Mr. Feller.

Edith Morash, Andreas Feller, and Maureen Finnegan prepare Community Care’s Christmas Memory Tree at Blumen Garden Bistro.

It’s the time of year when new memories are born and thoughts of times past are alive again.  While enjoying a holiday meal with family and friends at the Blumen Garden Bistro, patrons are invited to take a moment to hang an ornament on the Christmas Memory Tree.
Amongst the beautiful holiday glitter, the Memory Tree stands to collect ornaments hung in a quiet moment of reflection and celebration of the life of someone being remembered in this season.  Patrons are invited to make a donation to Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors, choose an ornament and place it on the Memory Tree.
The Memory Tree at the Blumen Garden Bistro, located at 649 Highway 49 in Picton, is in support of services for seniors.  The tree will touch the lives of many during this Christmas season. It gives the opportunity to remember a loved one during the holidays, and to make a donation to an organization that helps seniors live at home.
Maureen Finnegan, chair of Community Care’s fundraising committee, says, “we owe many thanks to the owner Andreas Feller for his co-operation and support of seniors in Prince Edward County through our agency.  This year Andreas is giving everyone who makes a donation the opportunity to be selected for dinner for two at Blumen.”
We want to thank Andreas for his generosity and also thank those people who have already contributed to the memory tree by making a donation.
