At Christmas tree lightings on Dec. 13 and 14, Catawba Regional Hospice honored patients and family members who have been served during the past year.
Hosted at three locations — the Catawba Valley Hospice House, the Sherrills Ford Hospice House, and the Hospice Thrift Store – the receptions featured remarks by chaplain Kim Fox-Dowell, benefactor Truitt Beard, and thrift store manager Jamie Icard.
Guests were treated to homemade cookies and punch, along with Christmas carols and other seasonal songs performed by a musical ensemble from Concordia Christian Day School.
