The Tribute Tree
Each year that we gather at convention, we have a Tribute Tree on display. This year’s tree is a quilt created by Northeast District members Diane Heiman and Kathy Francos.
The Tribute Tree will grow during the convention.. Leaves, apples, and pomegranates will be added temporarily to acknowledge donations that are made. Sixty percent of the proceeds from The Tribute Tree will be contributed to the YES Fund; forty percent will directly support programs and scholarships within the Northeast District.
The women honored will be given a note card for each donation made in her honor to take home. The pomegranates, apples, and leaves will stay with us for use at future conventions. We will also send a list of donors to each woman who is recognized after the convention.
Please consider pre-ordering your leaves as a tribute to those who have served, continue to serve, or have accepted new responsibilities in the Northeast District. All of our attendees, representing sisterhoods, women’s groups, and individuals within WRJ deserve this honor!
