Emerson Hospital Auxiliary to kick off holiday season with tree lighting

Concord – Twenty-four years ago, the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary began the tradition of lighting the evergreen tree which graces the main entrance to Emerson Hospital.

This year, the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary will continue this tradition by holding its annual Tree of Lights ceremony Monday, Dec. 3, at 4:30 p.m. The public is invited to join Emerson staff and patients for a brief program in the hospital’s Cheney Conference Room, followed by the tree lighting in front of the White House. The event will feature a special performance by the Holy Family Ringer Singers bell choir group.

A reception with light refreshments will follow in the Cheney Conference Room, where the Holy Family Ringer Singers will provide entertainment. The hospital gift shop will offer a 20 percent discount on one accessory or item of clothing for attendees. Parking will be validated.

Each light on the tree costs $10 and a star is $25. Checks, payable to the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary, may be mailed to Denise Haartz, P.O. Box 1596, Concord, MA 01742. The deadline is Dec. 15.

For a donation form or more information about the Tree of Lights, call Donna Grinnell at 978-263-9830.
