What a way to kick off the holiday season. At 6 PM Tuesday, the lights were turned on for the Pitt County Memorial Hospital Lights of Love tree.
The hospital is honoring the East-Care team and patient who were tragically killed in a deadly helicopter crash back in 1987.
Since the hospital's building a new interfaith chapel, the ceremony had to be moved to a new memorial garden on Wellness Drive which seems to have worked out perfectly.
P.C.M.H says it wants the tree to represent a visible symbol of love and hope, honoring friends and loved ones.
This year the tree sparkles with 54-hundred lights and a bright star lamp to top things off.
If you're interested in checking out the tree it's located on Wellness Drive between Vi-Quest and the service league of Greenville Hospice Center.
