Hospice holds traditional tree-lighting ceremonyby jmaloni
The Niagara Hospice Alliance will host its annual Light-A-Life Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m., under the Dominic Lariccia Family Pavilion behind Niagara Hospice House, 4675 Sunset Drive, Lockport. The addition of the new pavilion on the Niagara Hospice campus provides a central location for the annual family event.
Guests will enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, live music, refreshments that include a coffee and hot chocolate bar donated by Starbucks, followed by a non-denominational tree lighting service lead by the Niagara Hospice Bereavement Department. The Dominic Lariccia Family Pavilion will be heated and have sides. Guests, however, are advised to dress for weather conditions.
The community is invited to pay tribute to loved ones who have passed away, and to take the opportunity to share memories with others while supporting the network of services provided by Niagara Hospice. To memorialize a loved one and have their name displayed on the Light-A-Life tree, call Niagara Hospice at 716-280-0766 or visit the events page at www.NiagaraHospice.org.
Other commemorative memorial items are also available for a small donation. Orders will be taken through Dec. 2.
