Tree of Love Service is on Dec. 11


LACONIA — Kicking off the holiday season, the Lakes Region General Hospital Auxiliary is excited to announce the Tree of Love. An annual symbol of community Christmas and holiday spirit, the tree is lovingly adorned with angels crafted by local school children to honor and remember living and lost family and friends.

The angels are intended to remember loved ones; celebrate someone special, and/or honor those who courageously served our country, gave their lives or bravely fight today. Angels are $3 each, and may be purchased in the LRGH Auxiliary Gift Shop. The gift shop is also gearing up for the busy upcoming holiday season; stocking the shelves with the latest Alex and Ani, holiday décor and other great gifts for everyone on your list. Proceeds from the gift shop and the sale of angels support the local community, so stop in today!

The LRGH Auxiliary would also like to invite the community to attend the Tree of Love Remembrance Service on Thursday, December 11, at 1:00 pm in the Atrium at Lakes Region General Hospital. The brief ceremony will include a reading of the names on the tree and will be followed with some light refreshments and fellowship. All are welcome.

LRGHealthcare is a not-for-profit healthcare charitable trust representing Lakes Region General Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital, and affiliated medical providers. LRGHealthcare's mission is to provide quality, compassionate care and to strengthen the well-being of our community.
