The 2nd Annual Eagles Tree Walk, held at the Eagles Club #2368 on Dec. 3, raised $3,915.75 for Hospice of the Red River Valley. The donation will be used to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those in Thief River Falls and the surrounding communities.
The event featured beautifully decorated trees that were for sale during a silent auction, a soup and breadstick feed, an appearance from Santa and Mrs. Claus, and more. A Hospice Memorial Tree adorned with paper angel ornaments honored the memories of loved ones. The Bjerken tree was voted the most popular tree by attendees. This tree was decorated by the Thief River Falls Challenger Preschool class. They took a field trip to decorate the tree, view other trees and sing Christmas songs.
“On behalf of our patients, their loved ones and our staff, we thank Laurie Hager, the Tree Walk committee, the Eagles Club, sponsors and the Thief River Falls community for hosting such a great event,” said Jane Bartholomay, development officer at Hospice of the Red River Valley. “Your support and involvement is greatly appreciated and helps us provide the high quality care that our patients and their families deserve.”
