This holiday season, HospiceCare of Boulder and Broomfield Counties is inviting the community to celebrate, remember, and honor their loved ones with a glowing light on a Tree of Remembrance or menorah. Each symbolic light that sparkles will serve as a gentle reminder of warm memories that continue to shine.
Those who donate $20 for a symbolic light on the tree or purchase a crystal keepsake ornament will receive a complimentary luminaria from HospiceCare. The luminaria can then be personalized and brought to the events to light up the night. The events will feature an inspirational message, a musical presentation, refreshments, and a chance to write a personal sentiment in a remembrance book. Calligraphers will also be present to hand letter a ribbon with a loved one’s name.
“The ceremony is such a lovely way to remember someone who touched your life or pay tribute to a person who is special to you.” said Darla Schueth, President & CEO of HospiceCare. “The lights not only offer a sense of remembrance, they shine all year by supporting HospiceCare’s programs and ensuring nobody who needs end-of-life care is ever turned away based on inability to pay.”
There are two events to choose from:
East Boulder Recreation Center
5660 Sioux Drive, Boulder
Saturday, December 4, 2010, 5:00-6:00 p.m.
St. Vrain Memorial Building
700 Longs Peak Avenue, Longmont
