Love Lights A Tree

On Sunday, December 4th The American Cancer Society held its 27th annual “Love Lights a Tree” event sponsored by Tennova Healthcare. The night began with a wonderful performance by the Immaculate Conception School choir directed by John Nicolosi followed by a very moving sermon by Pastor Jimmy Terry Sr. of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. Every year someone who has dealt personally with cancer is inducted as an honorary chairperson, and this year’s inductee was Pastor Jimmy Terry Sr himself. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as he received a painting from the hosts of the evening to commemorate the night. The hosts were Lynne Griffey, Steve Jones, and Judith Castleberry. Every light on the tree, which stands tall in front of Tennova Healthcare, is a donation in memory of a loved one, and all proceeds from the event benefit the American Cancer Society.
