The Tree of Lights gives us the opportunity to honor, recognize, thank and remember the special people in our lives.
Hosted by the Arc Gateway Membership Committee
More than 300 bright shining lights were lit in honor, gratitude or in memory of a loved one at the Tree of Lights Ceremony this year. A crowd gathered at Pollak Training Center on December 15th to listen to the readings of each celebrated name and share cookies and hot cocoa on the cool evening. Everyone enjoyed the caroling provided by The Arc Gateway choir featuring the Pensacola Children's Chorus Ambassador Choir.The tree remained lit throughout the holiday season in honor of our loved ones and yours. A special thank you to Sue Straughn for leading the evening’s ceremony, and to Carol Beede and Ruth Brassow for leading The Arc Gateway Choir.
