Every holiday season, the Redwood Area Hospital Hospice Tree of Lights provides a visual reminder of the loved ones held dear.

Each year the tree is donated by a local community member and is placed on the corner of Washington and Second Streets in downtown Redwood Falls.

Tree Lighting ceremonies will be held this coming Friday (Nov. 16) at 6 p.m. at Redwood Alliance Church during Christmas by Candlelight.

A second Tree of Lights will shine at Morton city hall with a lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. that night.

“We hope the ceremony – and any time you see the tree – will be a moment to pause and reflect as you think of your loved ones,” said Amy Wendinger, Redwood Area Hospital Hospice manager.

During the Tree of Lights season, many people remember their loved ones by making a donation to hospice.

A donation form is available online by visiting redwoodareahospital.org or at Redwood Area Hospital’s registration desk.

Donations can also be mailed to Redwood Area Hospital Foundation, Attn: Tree of Lights, 100 Fallwood Road, Redwood Falls, MN, 56283.
