Light Up a Life
The Light-Up-A-Life Annual Campaign is one of the three major fundraisers sponsored by the Friends of Lewis County Hospice each year. All funds raised remain in Lewis County to insure that all individuals and families in the county needing Hospice services receive those services.
However, Light-Up-A-Life is more than a fundraising event. At the holiday Season it provides an opportunity to remember and acknowledge the greatest gift given to each and every person: the gift of life. Light-Up-A-Life invites us to remember the lives of those people, living and dead that have brought “light” into our own personal lives.
The names of the people that have been a light in our lives are placed on Small Christmas trees located at businesses throughout the county. Then all the nametags are delivered to the Lewis County Historical Society on State St. in Lowville and placed on a large tree lighted with a light for each name. After a short opening ceremony, all of the names are read aloud by volunteers from the various communities.
All people in Lewis County are cordially invited to come to the historical society and be a part of this celebration of lives of the special people that have touched many of us.
