Join us for the “Chamber Coffee”, Friday, November 13th hosted by Solomon Valley Hospice, 311 W Main, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. (come and go)
Solomon Valley Hospice is celebrating National Hospice Month with a few activities, but start your month off on Friday, November 13th at the Chamber Coffee! The following is the list of activities planned:
1. Chamber Coffee on Friday, November 13th with cinnamon rolls, juice and coffee!
2. November 21st will be our Wine Tasting and Silent Auction. This is one of ONLY two fundraising events we hold each year. The first is our Fireworks sale in July. This year we are moving the venue from our offices to the Down Under Ball Room. There will be many wines to try out, so come early so you will be able to try them all. We will again feature a sample of Crabbies Ginger Beer. There is also limited quantities of this item, so once it’s gone, it’s gone. The Down Under bar will be open as well. This will be a cash only bar. Normal Down Under prices will apply. The event will start at 6pm and run until 9pm. The auction bidding will stop at 8pm. This will give us time to get the auction items distributed prior to the band starting. The band, Soul Preacher, will play from 9pm to 1am. This has been a very successful fundraiser for us and we so appreciate all local businesses as well as private individuals who donate items to this fundraiser. All proceeds received from this event help pay for the care that individuals receive from hospice who do not have any private insurance, or no other means to pay for their care. We will again have a wine basket that features several wines from the Oz Winery that will be drawn for at the end of the night as a door prize.
3. Our Memorial Christmas Tree will be put up in S & S Home Medical Equipment window on Friday, November 27th. This tree adorns hand-blown crystal angels that commemorate the patients we have served in the last year. There will be a second tree that is placed at Solomon Valley Bank that will also have angels on it for the general public. Angels are available for purchase at Solomon Valley Hospice at a price of $15.00. You can also purchase a display stand for $5.00 if you choose. These angels come in a very elegant white silk lined box for protection if you are not going to display it all year round. These trees stay lit, night and day, until after the holiday season is over. The trees will be taken down on December the 31st, where the tree will be moved to the Zion Lutheran Church in preparation for our Tree Un-Lighting Memorial Service which will be held on January the 3rd at 3pm. This service satisfies two needs. It’s a time that we can memorialize our patients that have passed with their families, and to make contact with the families after their first holidays without their loved ones. It is part of our bereavement process.
