Honor the Memory of a Loved One at the Emanuel Love Light Ceremony
Turlock, CA— Once again this November, Emanuel Medical Center is providing area residents a way to keep the memory of a loved one bright at the upcoming Love Light ceremony and on the Love Light Tree.
Donations made to Hospice of Emanuel in honor or tribute of a loved one will be recognized with symbolic lights on this year’s Love Light Tree. In addition, the names of all individuals memorialized and honored will be scrolled on a screen at the beginning and end of Emanuel’s Love Light Ceremony on December 6 at 7 p.m. at Monte Vista Chapel, 1619 E. Monte Vista Ave. in Turlock. The ceremony is open to the public and registration is not required.
The names of those honored with a love light will also be listed in a scroll displayed with the tree, and printed in a booklet available at the event. Donations must be received by November 20 to be recognized during the lighting celebration.
After the lighting celebration, the tree will be then displayed at Covenant Village of Turlock at 2125 N. Olive Ave. and will remain there throughout the holidays.
The Love Light ceremony will include a short program by the Hospice of Emanuel team as well as special music and a candle lighting memorial service with refreshments to follow.
Donations for symbolic lights can be mailed or hand delivered to Emanuel Medical Center’s Office of Development located at 2881 Geer Road, Suite A, in Turlock. For more information phone 664-5180.
