Galion Hospital Auxiliary holds annual Festival of Lights


Staff report



Galion Hospital Auxiliary members, Helen Swain and Della Kaple, were on hand during the annual Festival of Lights to accept donations for the memory tree on display in the hospital lobby. The names of loved ones are written on special ornaments that remain hung on the tree throughout the holiday season.


The Galion Hospital Women’s Auxiliary held their annual Holiday of Lights event Dec. 10, when children and their families gathered in the hospital lobby for an array of holiday festivities.

The event also marks the day when both internal and external Christmas lights are turned on at Galion Hospital.

Children were greeted by Auxiliary members and treated to crafts, musical entertainment, letters to Santa, and face painting.

A special interactive story time was also held by Nancy Foss from the Galion Public Library. The Holiday of Lights is an annual tradition for the Galion Hospital Auxiliary and is a time when individuals can purchase an ornament in memory of, or in honor of, a loved one.

The ornaments are hung on a special Memory Tree throughout each Christmas season and then returned to the purchaser after the holidays.
