Dunmore East RNLI invites all to attend
Christmas Tree of Remembrance ceremony

Dunmore East RNLI lifeboat crew and fundraising branch will erect a special Christmas Tree of Remembrance outside the Waterford lifeboat station to honour those no longer here. The tree will remain there throughout the festive season and will be decorated with ribbons which will have specially written messages on them.

29th Novem ber 2017

A ceremony will be held on Sunday 10 December at 7pm where the Tree of Remembrance will be blessed, and the lights will be turned on, followed by a carol service. People are being urged to join the crew and raise a glass of mulled wine to remember loved ones.

Commenting on the event Dunmore East RNLI lifeboat crewmember Neville Murphy said, ‘As lifeboat crew, we are all too often faced with tragedy while endeavouring to bring those in peril at sea, home safe to their loved ones. The lifeboat in Dunmore East is at the heart of the community, so what better way to bring people together to remember those who are not with us this Christmas than to join together and unveil this symbol of joy.’

Remembrance Ribbons will be available to purchase locally for €2 each. They are currently available at the lifeboat station in Dunmore East and also on the night itself, a message can be written on the ribbon and then placed on the tree by one of the lifeboat crew. Funds raised through the sale of the ribbons will be going to the RNLI and their work in saving lives at sea.

The Dunmore East RNLI lifeboat urged people to join them and bring family and friends to remember those who are not here this Christmas, while also supporting the RNLI.
