DEXTER - A benefit golf scramble to support the work of Pine Tree Hospice will be held on Saturday, June 7 at Dexter Municipal Golf Course. The $30 registration fee includes greens fees for this 18 hold scramble with lunch and refreshments included.
Golf carts are available to rent. Prizes will be awarded in various categories, including closest to the cup and longest drive. Individuals or teams should call Dexter Municipal Golf Club at 924- 6477 to sign up and reserve tee times. The funds raised in the benefit will be dedicated to support the volunteer work of Pine Tree Hospice throughout the 28 towns served in Piscataquis, Penobscot and Somerset Counties.
Pine Tree Hospice provides information and support allowing clients and their families to experience the final phase of life the way they wish, and to address bereavement needs of hospice families and the community.
Caring end of life services provided by PTH includes companionship, respite care, transportation, food preparation, coordination of social services, spiritual, emotional and bereavement support. More than 70 volunteers provide these services to clients, caretakers, and loved ones of all ages.
The majority of Pine Tree Hospice services are provided in the home, but may also be provided in the hospital or other care facility. Pine Tree Hospice also provides one-on-one bereavement support, a monthly Drop-In Bereavement Group for adults, full scholarships to Camp Ray of Hope for grieving children and families, community education programs, and recently has added Evergreen, the Pine Tree Hospice Center for Grieving Children and their Families. This new program is designed to support the needs of children who have experienced a loss of a family member, friend, or loved one through a Peer Support model.
