The Conversation Tree

Thank you all for your support of the Conversation Tree! The tree has been on display during the month of April at the Bel Air Church of the Nazarene.

Young people that have lost their lives as a result of their addictions are the inspiration for this awareness campaign. The tree will be in the center court of the Harford Mall during the entire month of February. If you purchased an ornament, you will have the option to pick up your ornament after the tree is taken down at the end of February 2016 OR you can choose to leave it with the Foundation as part of ongoing awareness campaigns.

We are waiting to see if the Tree will move to another location for the month of May. We’ll post details as soon as they are available.

We cannot thank Jennilyn Landbeck enough for her time, artistic talent and love that she poured into each hand-made ornament.

We hope you had the opportunity to see the tree in person. Be part of the conversation! #bepartoftheconversation
