CMH to host Lights of Remembrance ‘Cheer-ity’ event Nov. 14

CMH Hospice annual holiday fundraiser honors the lives of loved ones

Citizens Memorial Hospice is holding a special Lights of Remembrance event Monday, Nov. 14, from 5:15-6:30 p.m. at the Kerry and Synda Douglas Medical Center at Citizens Memorial Hospital in Bolivar.

Hosted by CMH Hospice staff, the evening will welcome the holiday season with musical entertainment by Polk County Christian School and Bolivar High School Chorus Line. In addition, Hospice will present special awards to the following individuals/organizations:

  • Evans Drug, CMH Hospice Light Award;
  • CMH Marketing, CMH Hospice Partner in Care Award; and
  • Chantel Carter, RN, CMH Sue McCoy Hospice Service Award.

The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be served.

The purpose of the annual Lights of Remembrance “Cheer-ity” event is to honor the life of a loved one, support the Hospice philosophy of living life fully, comfortably and dying with dignity, and to involve the community in the support of Hospice care.

Individuals can make donations in honor of family and friends, or in memory of loved ones. The lights decorating the tree will be dedicated to those people who are being honored or memorialized. Giving to the Lights of Remembrance program will provide donations in our area to ensure that physical, emotional, spiritual and bereavement care is given to all terminally ill patients and their families. 

CMH Hospice caregivers strive to help patients remain as comfortable as possible at home, or in a homelike setting, with family and friends. The program also provides support to the family after a death of their loved one through a bereavement program.
