2020 Memory Tree

Remembering Loved Ones

      AMHERST – The “Baby Blue Eyes “ Spruce with vivid blue foliage was illuminated this year on the Amherst Town Common.  Although the spruce tree is in its infancy and still quite small, the message is significant. The blue spruce, layered in eight hundred white lights, shone brightly on the Amherst Town Common over the Holiday season.  For a small donation to the Amherst Garden Club’s Charitable Fund, loved ones who have passed, were memorialized. 

      Thanks to the generosity and caring of so many members of the community, the money will be carefully spent on a cause that is aligned to the Amherst Garden Club Mission. Past proceeds went directly to the Amherst Garden Club Scholarship Fund for those individual students attending an institution of higher learning to study horticulture, botany, plant science, landscaping design, or environmental science as it relates to horticulture.
