VAN WERT - The committee for the Tree of Lights met recently. Co-chairwomen Marlene Freund and Phyllis Lininger announced that they are now promoting sales for the annual tree. A table will be featured at the Apple Festival on Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the commercial building at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds. Lights and stars may be purchased at that time.

Each light sells for $5 and the stars for $50. By purchasing a light or star, a special person in one's life will be honored.

This is one of the annual fundraisers for the hospital that Twig III offers to the public.

Additional information may be obtained at the Van Wert Hospital gift shop. Posters will be put up in various businesses with additional forms.

The lighting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. in the lobby of the Van Wert Hospital.

After the lighting ceremony a drawing will be held. Tickets are being sold at the Hospital Gift Shop for a very large snowman to be raffled off at this time. This is another fund raiser being used by Twig III.
