AHCH releases 2015 Remembrance Ornament


This year’s ornament is made of hand-cast pewter and features the tree of life.

Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice has unveiled its Holiday Remembrance Ornament for 2015. Each year, thanks to sponsorship provided by Mechanics Savings Bank, a unique ornament is created and made available to all who want to remember a loved one. This year’s ornament is made of hand-cast pewter and features the tree of life. Proceeds from sales of the ornament support home health and hospice services for patients who do not have resources to pay for care and bereavement services.

2015 is the tenth year that Mechanics Savings Bank and AHCH have partnered to offer a Remembrance Ornament during the holiday season. Since the project began, over $33,000 has been raised.

“Mechanics Savings Bank is proud to support AHCH’s Remembrance Ornament fundraiser and its 5K and Remembrance Walk,” said Lisa Hallee, Chairwoman of Mechanics Savings Bank’s Charitable Giving Program. “Knowing that these events help families pay for the care of their loved ones warms our hearts. We are so thankful for the entire team at AHCH and the compassion and care they provide to this community.”

“Over the past 10 years, Remembrance Ornaments have been given as gifts to loved ones across the U.S.,” said AHCH Development Coordinator Teri Blaschke. “For some people, giving the Remembrance Ornament has become a family tradition. It’s heartwarming to be part of that.”

The ornaments are $20 each and include a tag with the honored individual’s name proudly displayed. The ornaments measure 2.5” by 2.5” and come pre-wrapped in a silver organza bag. Orders needing shipment require a $2.50 mailing fee and should be placed before December 9 to ensure delivery before Christmas. Ornaments can also be picked up after December 9 at AHCH’s Lewiston office at 15 Strawberry Avenue.

Order forms are available at all Mechanic Savings Bank locations, including 100 Minot Avenue in Auburn, 664 Main Street in Lewiston and 3 Drive-In Lane in Windham, at AHCH’s Lewiston office, and at AHCH’s Hospice House on Stetson Road in Auburn. Ornaments may also be purchased by calling 795-9428 or online at
