Lamar Area Hospice Hosting Annual Holiday of Lights & Memories

This Friday, just prior to the annual Parade of Lights in Lamar, the Lamar Area Hospice will host their 6th annual Holiday of Lights and Memories by the windmill at North Main and West Hickory Streets.  Hospice members each year renew the annual tradition of lighting the windmill to remember the passing of family, friends and loved ones through the years. 

The candlelight service includes prayers, scripture readings and remembrance.  After the names of loved ones have been ready, a bell will toll and the windmill will be illuminated in white Christmas lights.  The ceremony has become a means by which Hospice members honor the families they have served in years past, and for families to memorialize their loved ones through a memorial contribution. 

Donations may be made to Lamar Area Hospice to help provide care for patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses in Prowers County as well as areas of Bent and Kiowa Counties.  Additional information is available at 719-336-2100.  The public is welcome to attend the ceremonies beginning at 6pm on December 7.
