The annual Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association Hospice “Lights of Life” to honor loved ones and raise awareness about hospice has begun. Now through Dec. 1, participants may honor a loved one by inscribing their name in the “Lights of Life” honor roll. Those honored only need to have been special to you and do not need to have been a part of the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association hospice program.
Mail names and donations to Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association, 30 Pillsbury St., Concord, N.H. 03301 or sign up online at crvna.org/donate.html. The honor roll will be available for viewing at crvna.org beginning Tuesday and will be printed in the Concord Monitor on Dec. 19.
