The 20th Anniversary of Lights of Life Tree Lighting will take place Thursday at 6 p.m. in The Gardens of Memorial. The public is invited to attend. Funds raised go to the Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Health Care Foundation that provides extras for the hospital. The lights on the tree are in honor or in memory of those who have remembered one through a donation to Lights of Life and the Memorial Hospital Foundation. The family event will include music by the SSHS Jazz Band, Haystack Youth Choir, and the every popular Memorial Hospital Physicians Choir. Foundation Director Jackie Thornton and tri-chairs for Lights of Life and the Gala, Donna Rudzik, Polly Swatsell and Gloria Mitchell were guests on KSST’s Good Morning Show with Enola Gay Tuesday morning.
