Staff Report


Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital (OLBH) invites the community to join in the 30th installment of the hospital’s Lights of Love celebration on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Festivities begin at 6:15 p.m. with entertainment at the front entrance of the hospital with the Adult Handbell Choir from Advance United Methodist Church in Flatwoods under the direction of Diana Williams.

The Ironton High School Traveling Choir will sing beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the annual tree lighting ceremony to follow. Two-year-old Evan Laber will light this year’s tree. Refreshments will be served.

With a $5 donation to Lights of Love, a Christmas light on the tree will be dedicated in honor or memory of a loved one. Proceeds benefit the hospital’s Lifeline service — a home-emergency response unit that provides seniors assistance with just the push of a button.

The Lifeline system is a unit connected to the telephone, allowing the Lifeline user to utilize a small remote control to signal for help in the event of an emergency.

A call center is notified to send help when signaled.
