Letter to the editor: As the tree grows

Posted:  Friday, December 29, 2017 - 7:00pm

On December 3, a reading of those remembered was heard at the First Church in Belfast as part of the Love Lights Tree lighting.  The idea for the tree started earlier in the year and became a reality when Pastors Kate Winters and Joel Krueger donated a beautiful fir tree.  They were joined by several volunteers to plant the tree in front of the church.  The lights on the tree represent loved ones who have passed.  At this special time of year, the Love Lights Tree helps families and friends keep their loved ones’ memories alive.  Donations for the Love Lights will be used by the church to help community members in need.

We want to thank everyone who became a part of our Love Lights.  We invite you to drive by the First Church and see the wonderful white lights glowing from our little tree.   As the tree grows, the love and light will grow!   

Thank you again.
