Visitors to Hawley Winterfest this December 7th-9th will be able to see the Lights of Hope Tree in front of the Hawley Library on Saturday and Sunday.
The holidays can be especially emotional when lives have been affected by cancer. The Lights of Hope Tree is covered with white and lavender ribbons honoring those who have lived the cancer experience. The lavender ribbons bear the names of cancer survivors and patients while the white ribbons remember those whom cancer has taken, providing family and friends an opportunity to keep them in their holiday traditions.
Visitors to Hawley Winterfest will be able to obtain ribbons at the Library on Saturday and Sunday. These ribbons will be saved after the holidays and displayed at the Relay For Life of the Greater Lake Region Event May 18 -19, 2013. Ribbons will also be available from Loriann Fontanella, The American Cancer Society, 712 S. Keyser Ave. Taylor, PA 18517. Donations are greatly appreciated and support The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of the Greater Lake Region.
Interested persons are welcome to attend the Relay for Life meeting at The Settlers Inn in Hawley at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 19th. Cookies, coffee and tea will be provided. For more information on volunteering or joining a team, please contact Danielle Crouthamel at (570)840-1204 or email at
