A Christmas Tradition Returns to AnMed HealthClick to RSVP
Start DateDecember 8, 2009
This December, AnMed Health will celebrate the first lighting of the Christmas Star in four years. The Christmas Star has been a holiday tradition at the hospital for more than 60 years, but stopped when the star could no longer be repaired. Thanks to the gracious donation of a local couple, AnMed Health was able to purchase a new Christmas Star for the Medical Center. The star is AnMed Health?s gift to the community and its lights represent those honored through the Lights for Lifeline campaign.
During Lights for Lifeline, residents give gifts to the foundation?s Lifeline Fund in honor or in memory of a loved one. These donations help elderly or disabled residents to afford the Lifeline Personal Emergency Response Service. Each year, more than 100 people benefit from the Lifeline Fund.
The Christmas Star lighting will be held at the front entrance of the Medical Center. A reception will follow in the lobby. Light refreshments will be served.
