Snowline Hopsice celebrates life

Snowline Hospice’s Light A Life Remembrance Ceremony brings healing to grieving community members.

For those mourning the loss of a loved one, the holiday season can be the roughest time of the entire year. For these people and for anyone who would like to memorialize the memory of someone who has passed on, be it last year or 20 years ago — Snowline Hospice’s Light A Life ceremony can be a meaningful time of celebrating a person’s life.

The theme for this year’s program is “Reflections of Their Light Within Us.”

The 26th annual Light A Life event takes place at 6 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Wilkinson-Hupcey Building, 681 Main St. in Placerville.

Participants will have the opportunity to light a candle in memory of their loved ones and bring an ornament in honor of that person to hang on a live memorial tree. The tree will stay up throughout the holiday season so that visitors to the Wilkinson-Hupcey building can enjoy it and join in the remembrance celebration. Because the building is a public place Snowline cannot guarantee the safety of the ornaments; therefore, any ornaments brought to the ceremony should be simple and inexpensive.

Simple ornaments will be available at the program free of charge. Keepsake glass butterfly, angel and dove ornaments are also available for purchase.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. The program begins at 6 p.m.

This year Snowline is adding a second remembrance event, tree lighting and reception.

Snowline’s second Light A Life ceremony will be Thursday, Dec. 6 at Snowline Hospice’s In-Home Services Building, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road in Diamond Springs. Join Snowline at this site for a memorial tree lighting, a brief remembrance service and a hot cider reception at 5 p.m.

Anyone who plans to attend, or would like the name of a loved written an ornament and hung on the tree in their absence should RSVP to 530-344-4408 by Thursday, Nov. 29.
