    Patients to Benefit from Love Light Trees Support
     
    MIDLAND, Mich. – A sparkling array of lights illuminated the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland on a recent crisp winter night as the 37th annual Love Light Trees lighting ceremony was held. Nearly $30,000 has been donated thus far to the MidMichigan Health Foundation for the Love Light Trees program to support equipment needs and patient enhancements for the Medical Center in Midland. Dr. Charles and Sallie Sanislow served as co-chairs of the Love Light Trees ceremony and candle lighting remembrance event.
     
    The event began with a holiday open house that included guests greeted by MidMichigan’s therapy dogs, the Cosmic Canine Cure Service. The offering of a special holiday discount in the Gift Shop and complimentary popcorn for guests freshly made by the Popcorn Service volunteers were also enjoyed. Outside the Spiritual Care Center, guests picked up their remembrance candles, which were lit during the formal ceremony. Soothing background music filled the night air thanks to students from the H. H. Dow High School Honors Orchestra.
     
    Gregory H. Rogers, president of MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland, began the formal program, which included an invocation by Rev. Wallace H. Mayton, III, associate pastor of Memorial Presbyterian Church. As part of his remarks, Rev. Mayton paid tribute to those who were memorialized through gifts made to the Love Light Trees signified by the lighting of the remembrance candles. Singer, Sarah Schieber, followed and shared her talents by singing Christmas in Heaven.
     
    Additional holiday songs were sung by students of Lyrica from the Center Stage Youth Choirs, at the Midland Center for the Arts and the young children from Memorial Presbyterian Preschool. Door prizes offered by the Gift Shop Service Volunteers of MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland, along with refreshments with Santa were also part of the evening’s festivities. Pianist Lenin Brenes, a Medical Center employee, provided background music as guests enjoyed refreshments.
