FOREST CITY | Hospice of North Iowa will hold its annual Tree of Life ceremony in Forest City at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 4 at the TSB Bank Community Room, 101 HWY 69. A service will also be held in Lake Mills at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 14 at the Salem Lutheran Church, 401 S. Lake St.
The Tree of Life service provides the opportunity to remember loved ones or honor those living.
With a donation of any amount, a light is placed on a Tree of Life and "brought to light" symbolizing the presence of loved ones. Names are listed at the tree lighting service specified by the donor. In addition, a holiday ornament is provided to each donor who attends a Tree of Life service. Publication of a loved one's name must be requested since names are not continued from year to year.
All are invited to take part in a Tree of Life Service; no connection with Hospice of North Iowa is necessary to participate.
In case of inclement weather, cancelation of ceremonies will be announced on local TV and radio stations.
