‘Tree of Love’ to benefit Hospice

When the Hospice in the Foothills lights its “Tree of Love” on Dec. 7, it will burn brighter and more efficiently than in years past.

This week, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. and hospice volunteers will finish replacing the light strings hanging on the 100-foot double cedars on the property of Sierra Presbyterian Church with more than 6,000 energy-efficient LED lights.

Besides ushering in the holiday season, the tree lighting benefits Hospice. Each light will represent a $10 donation by local residents and commemorate the lives of family and friends.

Donors of $100 or more will be given a special commemorative ornament of a prancing reindeer.

The official lighting will take place at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 at Sierra Presbyterian Church, 175 Ridge Road in Nevada City.

The tree will remain lit through the end of December.

For more information about how to make a donation, call 272-5739.
