Lights Of Love Tree Illuminated

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.

    The Lights of Love Program is always a wonderful way to begin the holdiay season. I enjoyed the beautiful singing by Parrott Academy Chorus and Greenville Choral Society Children's Chorus. There was a warm welcome by Steve Lawler and moving prayer by Rev. Carol Steffa. Carl Briley, RN of EastCare delivered a presentation that brought tears to my eyes as I remembered and thank God for those (living and deceased) who have touched my life.
