Mercy Medical Center North Iowa
Tree of Life Ceremonies Will Honor the Spirit of Life
Start Date

MASON CITY -- As traditional as the holiday season, Hospice of North Iowa will hold its annual Tree of Life ceremonies in which evergreen trees will be “brought to light” during special ceremonies in six communities throughout the North Iowa area.

As contributions are received, lights are placed on trees in memory of loved ones or in honor of the living. The trees will be lighted at special ceremonies and will remain lit throughout the holidays to symbolize the presence of those honored and remembered. 

Every light on the Tree of Life celebrates and honors your loved ones in a very special way and helps extend the hospice services needed to allow patients to live out the last months of their lives with dignity, often in the comfort of their own homes. There is no minimum donation required to remember and honor someone with a light on the trees.
