Hospice group readies tree-lighting memorial
The Niagara Hospice Alliance will host its annual Light-A-Life Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony at 4 p.m. Dec. 7 behind the Niagara Hospice House, 4675 Sunset Drive in Lockport.
The nondenominational ceremony will take place under the new Dominic Lariccia Family Pavilion, which will be heated and partially enclosed for the event.
Visitors also can enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, live music and refreshments that include a coffee and hot chocolate bar donated by Starbucks.
The community is invited to pay tribute to loved ones who have passed away, and to take the opportunity to share memories with others while supporting Niagara Hospice. To memorialize a loved one, and have their name displayed on the Light-A-Life tree, call Niagara Hospice at 280-0766 or visit the events page at NiagaraHospice.org. Other commemorative memorial items are also available for a small donation. Orders will be taken through Dec. 2.
