Meadowlark Hospice to Hold Annual Tree of Light Ceremonies in December
Celebrate the life of someone you have lost or in honor of someone at a Tree of Light Ceremony hosted by Meadowlark Hospice.
The ceremonies are held indoors and include music, litany and the reading of names of honored individuals. Special ornaments made by hospice volunteers will be presented to families. As the individuals’ names are read, a symbolic votive candle is lit.
Individuals remembered do not have to be patients of Meadowlark Hospice.
Amy Burr, Programming Director for Meadowlark Hospice, says the ceremony will also include memorial recognition of the Meadowlark Hospice patients that have passed from November 1, 2018 through October 31, 2019.

Since 1990 Meadowlark Hospice has hosted Tree of Light Ceremonies in communities in their service area. This memorial tradition is coordinated by hospice volunteers. Gifts to Meadowlark Hospice are made in memory of a hospice patient, someone who had passed away, or in honor of an individual still living.
Meadowlark Hospice continues to use the gifts to help provide care to any person in need of hospice regardless of their ability to pay or cost not covered by insurance. It is a comforting reminder that our loved ones are still remembered and gives families a moment to treasure their memories.
Please consider a memorial gift to the Tree of Light in honor of those you love. All gifts are tax deductible. Please mail memorials to Meadowlark Hospice 709 Liberty St. Clay Center, KS 67432.
