Light Up a Life

Celebrate the life of a loved one and support end of life care with Care Partners' 6th Annual “Light up a Life" event. Each donation lights one bulb in memory of one person on our memory tree.  This year, our tree is located downtown, next to Drury Lane Books. Lights will be lit as donations come in. Donation forms are available at area churches, businesses and on the web at  

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held at East Bay Suites in their Stone Throw Room on Thursday, December 4th at 6 pm.  Pastor Beth Benson will assist with a short ceremony of reflection and connection. Music will be provided by Yvonne Mills. The event is sponored by Care Partners to support end of life services in Cook County.

Evergreen Christmas Wreaths by Roxann

Evergreen Christmas Wreaths For Sale

~ The scent of pine and cedar linger in the crisp winter air.  I breathe in deep and savor the spicy fragrance while looking to the grey snow sky.  Snowflakes drift and sway in their dance down to the earth and I watch the mingling of the frozen ice crystals as they gently paint winter onto the greens.   All is quiet, all  is well.


~ We make your evergreen wreath with a wild & fragrant mix of balsam, cedar, white pine, jack pine & spruce.  With woodsy pine cones worked in, each spray of pine is carefully chosen & placed to make your wreath an original.  Choose a bow & hang your wreath! 

~ Evergreen wreaths are available by order or by selection at the Community Center Holiday Sale on 11/29 and at Betsy Bowen’s Holiday Art Underground Open House on 12/5 & 12/6.  Call Roxann or email to order & coordinate delivery or pickup.
