More than 75 area residents welcomed Santa to Piedmont Mountainside Hospital's (PMH) annual Love Light Tree Ceremony. PMH Interim CEO Mike Robertson and Auxiliary President Margo Coleman, gave a warm welcome to the guests, who were enjoying the spirit of the season with hot chocolate and cookies. Santa Claus had the honor of lighting the Christmas tree while the Piedmont Mountainside Employee Ensemble and the First Baptist Church of Jasper Preschool Choir sang delightful carols.
Children were able to have their picture taken with Santa, courtesy of Jasper Drugs. The Love Light Tree, an annual fundraiser sponsored by the PMH Auxiliary, displays Love Lights and Star Lights purchased in honor or memory of family members, friends, or loved ones.
The monies raised will go to the new cardiac rehab center. Jasper area residents and the surrounding communities can purchase Love Lights and Star Lights through December 31 at the Hospital gift shop and Moore Furniture on North Main Street.
The Love Light is available for purchase in the amount of $7.00, while the Star Light is on sale for $25.00. For more information, please call 706-692-2441.
