11/12/09: Emerson Hospital to kick off holiday season with annual Tree of Lights on December 8
The Emerson Hospital Auxiliary will hold its annual Tree of Lights ceremony on Tuesday, December 8, at 4:30 p.m. Members of the community are invited to join Emerson staff and patients for a brief program in the North Assembly Room at the hospital, followed by the tree lighting in front of the White House. A reception of light refreshments will follow in the North Assembly Room. Parking validation will be provided.
Community members may donate a light on the tree in memory of a loved one, to honor a special person, or to celebrate a special event. Hundreds of tiny white lights, each representing a donation to Emerson in honor of a family member or friend, will illuminate the tree throughout the holiday season. A list of donors and honorees will be displayed in the hospital lobby. All donations made to the Tree of Lights will benefit the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary.
For information on donating a light for the ceremony, please contact Denise Haartz at 978-371-7211. A light on the tree with acknowledgement is $10. A light on the star with acknowledgement is $25. Donations may be made by mail by sending payment to Doris Webber, 8 Maple Street, Bedford, Mass., 01730. All donations should be made by December 15. Please make checks payable to Emerson Hospital Auxiliary.
