Celebrate a life, plant a tree

Planting a memorial tree is one of the most meaningful ways to express your thoughts to families and loved ones. While flowers will fade away, the thoughtfulness of a planted memorial tree will be appreciated for more than one lifetime. The meaningful planting is a remembrance of the past and at the same time a renewal of life.

aauwsignIn addition, your donation supports the Tillamook AAUW College Scholarship Program for local students. AAUW has been supporting education for women and providing scholarships for 70 years in Tillamook County. The planting of the tree is a significant statement of the hope and expectations for the recovery of Earth’s natural resources.
