Lights for Love Reading of Names

Hospice of Washington County’s Lights for Love Event for 2020 was slightly different than in the past. We did a memorial drive instead of our traditional gathering and reading of the names due to COVID-19. We want to thank our Annual Gifts Committee and Development Staff for organizing the event, and thank our sponsors First Energy and Middletown Valley Bank. We hope as we do this virtual reading of names that this will give you comfort and peace as we enter into this holiday season.
