Tree of Lights Ceremony Held at JC Healthcare Center

Many local residents who are missing a loved one this Christmas season gathered in the main entrance of the Johnson County Healthcare Center for the Tree of Lights ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

Jodi Verplancke spoke of why the event is important…

Those attending were able to purchase a tree ornament in honor or memory of a friend or family member who has passed or is dealing with an end of life journey.

Those ornaments, adorned with the names of those being recognized were then hung on the centers tree at the main entrance.
