Memory Tree


Remembering Loved Ones

Memory Tree 2022 Dedication: Carolyn Quinn passed away this fall and the Amherst Garden Club would like to honor her life by dedicating our 27th Memory Tree to her. A longtime resident and AGC member, Carolyn brought the original idea of a Memory Tree to Amherst to enrich the meaning of the holiday season. The year was 1995 when she announced that a Memory Tree would be lit at the Annual Town Tree Lighting on the green, in honor of those whose memory we particularly cherish. Since then, it has become an Amherst tradition for the Memory Tree to remain lit throughout the holiday season.   This year, an eight-foot Fraser Fir across from Moulton's Market in the village was lit with hundreds of tiny white lights to carry on this beloved tradition.  

      The funds that are raised each season are used to support worthy local causes that are carefully selected as aligned with the mission of the Amherst Garden Club. We hope these tiny white lights will once again serve as reminders to family and friends of those people who have passed and were so significant in our lives. Thank you to everyone who so generously contributes to making the Memory Tree such a success each year.
