Santa RosaMedical Centerhosted its annual Wreath Lighting & Holiday Celebration on Thursday, December 5 on the front lawn of the hospital.

Hospital associates, physicians, volunteers and members of the community appeared to enjoy holiday music by the Bennett Russell Elementary School Chorus, hot chocolate and cookies, and a visit from Santa Claus.

The event was free and parents were encouraged to bring their cameras to capture holiday memories with family and friends.

Santa visited children in the Main Lobby of the hospital; he and his elves had presents for all good boys and girls. Cat Country 98.7 FM was there and brought the Cat Country Prize Wheel.

The Santa Rosa Medical Center Auxiliary (hospital volunteers) coordinated the Wreath Lighting Ceremony.  For a $3 donation, a light on the wreath was designated to honor or memorialize a person, group or community business.

The name honored or memorialized will be placed on an ornament on the Christmas tree in the hospital lobby for visitors to see during the holiday season. Funds raised from the Wreath Lighting will go toward the Auxiliary scholarship fund and other community outreach projects.

Santa RosaMedical Center is located at 6002 Berryhill Road in Milton. To purchase a light on the wreath, contact Volunteer Services at 626-5113. Questions regarding the holiday celebration may be directed to Marketing at 626-5370.
