Honor loved ones on annual 'Tree of Lights'

Honor those who have enriched your life or remember those who will be missed this holiday season through a donation to the Tree of Lights. The tree, located on the west lawn of the Douglas County Hospital in Alexandria, is sponsored by the hospital auxiliary.

All funds will be donated to the Douglas County Outreach Food Shelf or Douglas County Public Health Hospice. Donors may specify to which entity they want their gift to go.

Tree of Lights contribution forms will be published in the Friday editions of the Echo Press in December, or can be picked up at the Douglas County Hospital Gift Shop, Elden's Fresh Foods or Pete's County Market, all in Alexandria.

The names of those honored and remembered will be published in the Echo Press after December 25.

For more information, call the hospital gift shop at (320) 762-1511 or Nancy Bauer at (320) 763-5414.
