Annual "Lights, Life and Memories Campaign Generates Over $57,000 to Support Hospice Services

Not-for-profit home health and hospice agency Granite VNA raised more than $57,000 during its annual Lights, Life and Memories campaign to support hospice services for residents in 82 New Hampshire communities. More than 130 area businesses and nearly 500 individuals generously supported the campaign, which concluded in December with four community remembrance ceremonies. 

Lights, Life and Memories honors and remembers loved ones who have passed and recognizes the importance of hospice care in New Hampshire. 

Each year, community members participate by placing the names of loved ones who have passed on the online honor roll and/or placing their names on handmade porcelain doves which are displayed on evergreen trees at community remembrance services in Alton, Concord, Meredith and Wolfeboro. The ceremonies were held December 9 and featured music, readings, reflection and remembrance.

The 2023 Lights, Life and Memories honor roll included the names of 1,412 people and 492 porcelain doves carrying the names of loved ones were placed on the four evergreen trees.
