Trees of Love open house @ Sheridan Memorial Hospital
Dec 6 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The annual tree lighting open house for Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Christmas Trees of Love will be Sunday from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the front lobby of the hospital. The trees will be lit at 5 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, the trees provide residents the opportunity to dedicate a light in honor or memory of a friend or family member. White lights memorialize a deceased loved one; green lights honor a relative or friend; and red lights honor a child or a pet.

“Lights can be dedicated to a loved one with a donation of $5 or more any time until Dec. 31. However, donations that are received after the tree lighting may not be acknowledged until after the first of the year,” said Joan Kalasinsky, chairperson for the Trees of Love project.

While many people purchase lights for someone who is no longer living, the lights also make an excellent holiday gift for a friend, neighbor or loved one.

With the donation, the Auxiliary sends a card to the honoree or the family informing them of the dedication. The honoree’s name is then inscribed in the Book of Love, which will be on display in the hospital lobby during the holidays.

“Last year, it was overwhelming to see the growth in the support of the program,” Kalasinsky said. “I encourage people to join us at the lighting again this year and to remember friends and family with lights.”

Each year proceeds from the Trees of Love project go to fund a needed project or piece of equipment for the hospital.

Application forms are available at the hospital’s reception desk or in businesses and offices throughout the community and on the hospital’s website, www.sheridanhospital.org.
