Annual Love Lights Campaign Starting Nov. 2
GREENEVILLE, TN –
For 23 years, a lit tree on the roof of Takoma Regional Hospital has reminded the community of friends and family, past and present.
Known as the “Memorial Tree,” this community landmark helps Greene Countians to remember and honor loved ones during the Christmas season.
“As you drive along the Asheville Highway, you can see the outline of this tree in lights and automatically it makes you think of home and family and friends,” Lindy Riley, volunteer director at the hospital, said.
A special lighting ceremony will be held on Monday, Dec. 7, at noon in the Everett and Carolyn Coolidge Volunteer Conference Center. The public is invited to attend.
The ceremony kicks off the official start of the annual “Love Lights Campaign,” a fundraiser by the hospital’s volunteers for upcoming Takoma Regional projects.
“Supporting this campaign has become a holiday tradition for many,” Riley said.
Lights may be sponsored for $5 per person. In addition, names of those being remembered or honored will be published in the “Greeneville Sun” on Dec. 24. Contributions will be accepted beginning Nov. 2.
To participate in this program, please visit the hospital’s Forget-Me-Not Gift Shoppe, contact a Takoma Regional Hospital volunteer, or mail in a form that will be published in an upcoming edition of the “Greeneville Sun.”
For more information, please call Lindy Riley at 798-8136 or the Forget-Me-Not Gift Shoppe at 639-3151, Ext. 2104.
