Ceremony will be held at Redwood Alliance Church with time for fellowship and will end by lighting the tree outside just before the holiday lights parade.

This years Tree of Lights will shine at both CentraCare – Redwood’s main campus and downtown Redwood Falls. A permanent tree has been generously donated by a local community member and placed near the corner of Washington and 2nd Streets in downtown Redwood Falls.

Tree of Lights is an annual fundraiser for CentraCare – Redwood’s hospice services. Each year during the holiday season hundreds of families recognize loved ones by making a donation to support the hospice program. Individuals recognized are displayed on a digital screen near the Tree of Lights.
