The Memorial Healthcare Auxiliary will host its annual Tree of Love Lighting Ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 2rd at 6 p.m. in the main lobby of the Hospital. Each year, the auxiliary kicks off the month of December with a traditional Tree of Love Lighting Ceremony. In addition to the tree lighting, the St Paul’s Children’s Choir will perform and there will be story time with Santa. Photos with Santa are available for $3. All proceeds from Santa photos as well as donations collected through the sales of snowflakes and doves on the Grand Tree of Love will be used to purchase a Panda Baby Warmer for newborns. If you want to learn more about the Auxiliary, the tree lighting event or purchasing snowflakes and doves in memory of a loved one, please call the Auxiliary office at (989) 729-4675.
