SHERIDAN — The Auxiliary of Sheridan Memorial Hospital will host the Christmas Trees of Love open house on Sunday from 4-5 p.m.
The trees will be lit at 5 pm. Refreshments will be served.
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.
The $5 donation will include a card sent to the honoree or the family informing them of the dedication from the Auxiliary. The honoree’s name is then inscribed in the Book of Love, which will be on display in the hospital lobby during the holidays.
Application forms are available at the hospital’s reception desk and on the hospital’s website at www.sheridanhospital.org.
Sheridan Memorial Hospital is located at 1401 W. Fifth St.
