Hall’s 18th annual Service of Remembrance will take place in Thomaston this Saturday, December 6th at 2pm on Main Street in Thomaston and also in Waldoboro Sunday, December 7th at 3pm at Hall’s on Main Street in Waldoboro.

This warm and comforting service at Hall’s will allow all who attend to come together to remember and celebrate their loved one during this holiday time and allow them to cherish the memories of our family and friends they have lost.
The program will include the candle lighting ceremony. The staff at Hall’s read the names of the community members who died this past year and the family members will come forward to light a candle in memory of their loved one or friend. After the names are read, everyone was welcomed to light another candle in memory of other family and friends who have died in the past.
As a gift, the families will receive one personalized glass ornament in memory of their loved one to hang on their Christmas Tree as a gift from the Hall family and staff.
Mike Hall, owner of Hall’s, expressed “This annual service of remembrance has helped many families honor their loved ones, and has provided a safe place to express their feelings and ultimately brings hope to each family. In this Christmas Season, cherish your family and friends, and tell them how much you love them and what they mean to you.”
Refreshments will be served afterwards. All are welcome to attend. Please call Hall’s at 354-6025 or 832-5541 to respond.
Please join everyone at Hall's in welcoming Laura Conway as our newest Funeral Director and Tribute Team Member!
Laura Conway grew up in Livermore Falls, Maine and after graduating High School went on to college at SMCC to obtain a degree in Radiography. Laura graduated from SMCC in 2006 and started working at Southern Maine Health Care as a CT Technologist.
When Laura started working at SMHC she was looking for a place to live, when one of her co-workers told her about a friend. He was living alone, so Laura moved in with him as a roommate. It was a match made in heaven and in 2009 Laura and Eric married at the Bethel Inn with many friends and family members to celebrate.
While working at SMHC and Mercy Hospital Laura obtained her degree from American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Services in 2013 and started her apprenticeship in Biddeford before coming to Hall Funeral Homes.
Laura enjoys dance, field hockey, hiking, sitting by a camp fire and spending time with her family. But she especially enjoys shopping.
Laura looks forward to becoming a part of the community and local gatherings, and to helping families celebrate their loved one's lives in meaningful and unique ways.
Hall’s Is Now Accepting Old American Flags for Honorable Disposal
Hall Funeral Home and Tribute Centers are now accepting old American flags for honorable disposal at their three Tribute Center locations in Waldoboro, Thomaston and Boothbay. Community members are encouraged to bring their well-loved American flags to any of these locations during normal business hours for Hall staff to care for in a dignified and respectful manner.
“At Hall, our hearts are full of love and respect for the United States and for all active duty and veteran military families,” stated Mike Hall, president. “When a veteran passes, we always do the most that we can to honor that person’s military career. The men and women who serve our country, and their families, have made huge sacrifices for which we are humbled,” commented Jason Guest, Director and Tribute Team Leader at Hall.
The proper way to dispose of an old American flag is through burning. Here is what they plan to do with the old flags: “In an effort to follow the proper protocol for flag disposal, we will be draping the worn flags, when available, over the caskets of veterans whose families choose cremation, with their permission. This is a dignified way to honor our veterans during their final disposition and to show respect for the flag and for what it stands,” said Liz Hall.
Hall’s encourage you to bring your worn American flags to any of their three locations: 949 Main Street in Waldoboro; 975 Wiscasset Road in Boothbay; 78 Main Street in Thomaston.
For more information, questions or to schedule a drop-off, please contact Hall’s at 832-5541, 633-2171 or 354-6025.
The employees of Hall’s invite you to join us for a Pancake Breakfast at our Tribute Center & Community Room, 949 Main Street in Waldoboro, on Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The breakfast is free for community members, however, donations are graciously accepted to benefit our local food pantries. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to food pantries in Waldoboro, Newcastle and Jefferson.
As a part of Hall’s mission to provide families care and support after the passing of a loved one, Hall’s is starting a grief support group called “Good Grief”. The group will be meeting the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm at Hall’s Tribute Center of Waldoboro, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro, ME 04572. This will be a safe environment to share stories, concerns and help families who have lost a loved one.
The leader and facilitator of “Good Grief” will be familiar to many in the community. Robin E. Honaker, M.Div. in Counseling, is the Congregational Minister of the Pilgrim Community Church in Camden and has worked with Hall’s for 3 years as Tribute Team Leader in Waldoboro.
Robin has all too much experience with grief. According to Honaker, “I have been there, I am there, and will continue to live in this reality of loss. In the past 8 years, I have lost a sister, a father, and a daughter; and the levels of grief is different in each of the losses – the losses were real but now there is hope.” Robin understands and wants to help families see a brighter future in your grief.
“This is a wonderful addition to our After Care program where we send 4 grief booklets called “Journeying through Grief” to families throughout the first year after the loss of a loved one.” said Mike Hall, President of Hall’s. “We are grateful to Robin and Pilgrim Community Church for supporting us in our mission”.
So, please join us the 2nd Tuesday of each month in Waldoboro at 5:30pm. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please call 832-5541 or 354-6475.

Today we remember the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, Flights 11, 175, 77 & 93 and honor those who went to their rescue.
This 9-11 do something to honor our 11th anniversary and remember those sacrifices made by our veterans, 1st responders and the families of those who lost a loved one on that fateful day.
We love the Olympic spirit and now we can say one of our own, Boothbay Harbor native Ellie Logan, and her U.S. women's eight rowing team defeated Canada by half a boat length to win the gold medal at the London Olympics Aug. 2, 2012.
The U.S. team won gold at the Beijing games in 2008.
Congratulations to all the women, their coaches and families for the dedication and commitment and passion it takes to go for the gold!
Happy 4th of July! Like you we're a family. We appreciate traditions and celebrate our country's Independence. Even though the holiday may be a celebration of something that happened long ago, we're happy that people everywhere are spending time with their families and we celebrate that as well.
For thousands of years, funerals have been a means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone we love. The funeral ceremony helps us acknowledge that someone we love has died, allows us to say goodbye, helps us remember the person who died and encourages us to share those memories with others. The funeral also offers a time and place for us to talk about the life and death of the person who died, provides a social support system for us and our community, allows us to search for the meaning of life and death and offers continuity and hope for the living.
If you have questions on how to plan a meaningful and appropriate funeral, please feel free to call us and we will be here to help.
