Hospice Tree Lighting Ceremony

By Staff | Dec 10, 2009

A Tree Lighting Ceremony will be hosted by Hospice of Palo Alto County this Sunday, Dec. 13. The ceremony to honor family and friends that have passed away will be at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby at Palo Alto County Hospital, Emmetsburg.

“You may request a light in memory of any loved one,” said Hospice Director Karen Kauffman. “If you choose, a free will donation will be accepted to benefit the Palo Alto County Hospice program.”

The tree will be lighted and recognition will be given for names the lights represent. Fellowship and refreshments will follow.

Forms to request a light can be found at local churches, on the hospital web site at www.pachs.com, or by calling 712-852-5419.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony is the first of what will become an annual Christmas event.
