Lights of Love, Laughter, Life Reindeer
The Rush Memorial Hospital Cultivation Club hosted their annual Lights of Love Community Christmas Tree Lighting on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017. The community was invited for an amazing Christmas season kick-off. The event began at 5:30 p.m. at the 13th Street entrance of Rush Memorial. The Benjamin Rush Middle School choir lead everyone in carol singing. The 2017 Rush County Youth Volunteer of the Year recipient, Hannah McGee lead the countdown to the lighting of the huge Christmas tree on the southwest corner of the hospital property. Santa was present along with his live reindeer. Families were able to pet the reindeer. Weston the Elf made a return engagement to delight the children and pass out books for every young child in attendance. Hot chocolate, hot cider and cookies were served in the Medical Office Building.
The refreshments were sponsored by Hubler Auto Center.
