Cornerstone VNA, a local nonprofit provider of high-quality, skilled care at home, is pleased to announce that the 35th annual Lights of Love event will be held on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at 4:30pm in a virtual format. For over three decades, Lights of Love has thrived as an important community event due to the work and vision of Jane Cooper Fall. Jane Cooper Fall was the driving force behind Lights of Love, as a way for community members to pay tribute to those who had touched their lives in a positive manner. Although Jane passed away in October 2018, her legacy is continued with pride and honor by the Cornerstone VNA team alongside volunteers from the former Frisbie Hospital Auxiliary Board. According to Cornerstone VNA President/CEO Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, “We are honored to run the event in accordance with Jane’s wishes for many years to come, thus providing a legacy to Jane’s goodwill.”
Community members are welcome to participate in this annual holiday tradition to honor, remember and celebrate those who have had a special impact on their lives. With each $5 donation, a tribute name will be added to a holiday light at Cornerstone VNA and will be a part of a virtual celebration. The virtual Lights of Love event will be available for viewing at cornerstonevna.org/lightsoflove starting at 4:30pm on December 1st and can be viewed and shared throughout the holiday season.
Hundreds of lights will shine on each tribute name, and community members are welcome to visit the Lights of Love display at 178 Farmington Road in Rochester, NH, starting on December 2nd. Visit cornerstonevna.org/lightsoflove for more information on reserving lights and to sign up to receive special event notifications. Please submit your Lights of Love order by November 15. If your order is received after the 15th, your tributes’ names will be added after the event has started.
