BEAVERCREEK — Soin Medical Center invites the community to kick off the holiday season Thursday, Nov. 29 with its Lights of Love.

“We are pleased to continue the six-year tradition of kicking of the holiday season this way,” said GMH & Soin Community Outreach Coordinator Donna Saraga. “And this year Greene Memorial Hospital is especially grateful and humbled by the level of support the community showed to us during our recent levy campaign. We want to celebrate with our neighbors and friends and invite everyone to join us.”

Visitors will enjoy caroling, music, cookies and cocoa, a live nativity and children may write letters to Santa. In addition there will be a special appearance by Santa.

“Being in the hospital is stressful for patients and their loved ones, especially during the holidays,” said Kettering Health Network CEO Fred Manchur in a press release. “This lighting display helps add to our hospitals’ ‘healing environment’ by bringing an element of the holiday season to our patients and to all who visit our hospitals.”

Activities begin at 5:30 p.m. with the tree lighting ceremonies taking place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 – Soin Medical Center, 3535 Pentagon Blvd.
