The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton will kick off its 35th Annual Tree of Lights Campaign with a tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, November 20 at 4 p.m., in front of University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton. Contributions this year will support the funding of two treadmills for Cardiac Rehabilitation at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton.“The two treadmills being replaced have been in service by our patients for over 20 years,” says Sally Worm, regional program manager, Cardiopulmonary Fitness and Wellness. “Treadmills in Cardiac Rehabilitation are the most utilized pieces of equipment and important for so many of our patients to improve their health and enhance their recovery. We really appreciate the Auxiliary for their work and making a difference for our patients.”

“Our goal for this year’s Tree of Lights campaign is $4,000,” comments Nancy Espenhorst, Tree of Lights chair for the Auxiliary.

For a contribution of $10 or more, a red or gold light may be purchased for the holiday tree in front of UM Shore Medical Center at Easton. Red lights are tributes to family members and friends, living or deceased. Gold lights honor loved ones serving in the military. A donation of $100 or more will purchase a white “Life Light,” that will be illuminated every year. The name of each person recognized through the purchase of any light will appear on scrolls displayed in the Medical Center throughout the holiday season.

The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton is a volunteer organization that raises funds to benefit programs and services at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton and various outpatient locations of UM Shore Regional Health.
