Hospice plans tree lighting ceremonyby jmaloni
The Niagara Hospice Alliance will host its annual Light-A-Life Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony at 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, under the Dominic Lariccia Family Pavilion behind Niagara Hospice House at 4675 Sunset Drive in Lockport.
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 pavilion will be heated and have sides, however guests 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.
Gifts made to the Niagara Hospice Alliance are tax-deductible and help provide quality end-of-life care with dignity. For more information, visit www.NiagaraHospice.org or call 716-439-4417.
