Past Activities:

"Trees of Life" gather for their holiday celebration Nov.2015

The total raised from 1992-2016 is $256,160 which has helped children, families, and charitable groups in need of assistance.

Our 2016 benefit project raised $33,310 to benefit Luke Haselman, a 3-year-old suffering from Leukemia childhood cancer. We held a benefit titled "Defiance has Talent and Heart" and a prize-a-day calendar for the month of Oct.

Trees of Life donated $20,000 to Hospice-The Caring Way of Defiance for a room at the new in-patient care facility. The room was dedicated on Feb. 15, 2007 in memory of our dear friend, Jeannie Lehman, who passed away in December 2004. The group also donated the giclee "Winter's Calm" which hangs in the entry.
The funds were raised from the sales of a chapter cookbook, "Ohio Traditions with P. Buckley Moss".

Pat joins "Trees of Life" members in presenting "Ho-Ho-Ohio" at the Roanoke, VA Convention costume parade in 2013

"Trees of Life" members present "Sisterhood" and "Starlight" at the Dayton, Ohio Convention costume parade in Oct., 2003.

Remarks to Potential Members:
We are fortunate to have a wonderful group - currently about 30 members - of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds, but we all share the common thread of a love for Pat's art and for helping children in need. We share lots of laughs - and some tears - and have developed many treasured friendships.
Dues are $10.00---send to Deb Weisgerber; 1051 Wayne Ave., Defiance, OH 43512
