‘Tis the season to count our blessings and be thankful for time spent with family and friends. And, to remember all of those who have touched our lives.
Light Up a Life is an annual celebration of life during the holiday season. Started in 2011, Light Up a Life is an opportunity for the community to remember and honor loved ones. A donation is represented by a light on the Tree of Remembrance.
Thousands of twinkling lights illuminate the tree located in the Tom Lock Memorial Observatory on the grounds of the Blue Water Hospice Home. Each light symbolizes the life, hope, and dreams of a loved one. All are welcome to view the lighted tree through the month of December from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily. The observatory is located on the grounds of the Blue Water Hospice Home, located at 2795 Edison Drive, Marysville, MI.
“Light Up a Life campaign came about as a way for family and friends of current or former patients to pay tribute to them while giving back to hospice services” says VNA & Blue Water Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Heidi Benner.
Lights can be “in memory” or “in honor” of anyone you choose. Funds raised benefit charity care at the agency, ensuring all patients receive care, regardless of their financial standing.
