Castlegar Hospice Society is having their eight annual Celebrate a Life campaign at the Castlegar Super 8 Motel.

“Once again, we turn the lobby of the Super 8 into a nice holiday display. We also have three donation trees,” said Suzanne Lehbauer, executive director of the hospice society. “This year’s theme is Winter Wonderland. Our volunteers worked extremely hard to put everything up.”

People can go down to the Super 8 and pick up a card and donate to one of the trees in memory of a loved one and put a card on the tree.

The Castlegar Hospice Society also has three pre-decorate trees for rent or sale.

“They are on display at the Castlegar Community Complex right now,” said Lehbauer. The trees are $150 to rent and $200 to buy. Anyone interested can call the society office at 250-304-1266.

Lehbauer encourages anyone that feels they need extra help over the holidays can call the hospice for help.
