Memories light up this holiday season



ROANOKE (WSLS 10)- Good Samaritan Hospice is preparing for their Love Light Tree Lighting Ceremony this year.

The annual program supports end of life care in the Roanoke and New River Valley areas. Trees at the Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke and the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg are decorated with “love light tags”, name tags representing the light that person brought to the world.

The tree at Tanglewood is set to be lit at 10:00 a.m. on November 30th. The River Valley Mall Tree will be lit December 1st at 10:00 a.m. as well.

The lighting ceremonies will feature music, refreshments, and opportunities for fellowship.


These $10 tags are still available for purchase.

Good Samaritan Hospice is also selling porcelain ornaments for $25. The ornaments change every year; the 2016 ornament is a rose.

The deadline to order an ornament in time for Christmas is December 15th. 2015-love-light-tree
