"Christmas Tree of Remembrance" opens in The Mall at Turtle Creek

JONESBORO AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 organization is helping people to remember those who will not be at home this holiday season with the "Christmas Tree of Remembrance."

The tree opened at the Mall at Turtle Creek Monday. The tree is a fundraiser through the Rotary Club of Jonesboro. It allows People to write a message to those they would like remember for Christmas.

Rotary Club President, Dennis Zolper says, the remembrance message can be for anyone whether they've past away, are in the service and won't be home for the holidays, or maybe just a good friend or family member who can't make it home.

Donations to the tree help various projects and programs. The "Christmas Tree of Remembrance" will be open until Christmas Eve.
