Annual Tree of Hope Lighting Ceremony at Onslow Memorial

The 2017 annual Tree of Hope Lighting Ceremony will be held at 7pm Thursday, December 7, on the front lawn of Onslow Memorial Hospital. 

"For centuries, lighting candles has been a symbol of hope and remembrance," said Kay Brandon, president of the OMH Auxiliary. "For 30 years, the Auxiliary's Tree of Hope Program has been a way to show remembrance, admiration, or love for someone."

Individuals or groups can purchase a light for the tree in memory or in honor of a loved one or friend for a minimum donation of $10. In addition to a light, a star may be purchased for $25 each.

Contributions are tax deductible, with proceeds used to purchase needed equipment for the hospital. The names of honorees and the donors will be entered into the Book of Honor, on display in the main lobby of the hospital throughout the month of December.

Local officials and friends of Onslow Memorial Hospital have been invited to the Lighting Ceremony. The program will include speeches by a hospital board member, city councilman and a U.S. Marine. The event will also include music by a men’s quartet and the performance of a commencement song.

Participating in the program is a way to honor those you love, appreciate, or admire–perhaps a family member, teacher, youth leader, friend or neighbor. At the same time, your generosity will help our community hospital continue to serve others.


For further information or assistance, you may contact the hospital’s Volunteer Services Office at (910) 577-2341.
