Marlborough Hospital to hold 12th annual Tree of Light event
Marlborough – Marlborough Hospital will light the hospital’s “Tree of Light” Thursday, Dec. 13, at 5 p.m. Guests will gather in the hospital’s Leahy Conference Center, 157 Union St., for some holiday refreshments, and festive holiday songs will be performed by local school children. This year, Kathy Denio, a former Marlborough Hospital employee, will “light” the tree.
The Tree of Light will be decorated with angels, shining stars, snowflakes, and twinkling lights. The lights and decorations are gifts from patients, family members, employees, and friends of the hospital. An “angel” may be purchased in memory of a loved one or a “shining star” can be purchased in honor of a physician, nurse, or any hospital employee who provided compassionate care to a patient or a family member. Snowflakes and lights represent gratefulness to the hospital for care or simply as a “thank you” to the hospital for being here in the community.
Since 1890, Marlborough Hospital has provided quality and compassionate care to the residents of the community. The Tree of Light represents the patients, the hospital staff and the members of the community that the hospital has served for 120 years.
