Hospice of Davidson County is providing several opportunities for the community to remember loved ones and honor cherished memories through its annual ornament & luminary sale and Night of Reflection event(s).
This year’s memorial ornament is a white heart handcrafted by Breanna Macon, of Macon a Mess Pottery, in Seagrove. Individual ornaments are available for $15 and can be personalized with a name upon request. Luminaries, which can be personalized to honor or memorialize a loved one, are available for $10. An ornament and luminary package may be purchased for $20. To purchase an ornament and/or luminary, please visit hospiceofdavidson.org.
New in 2022, Hospice is also offering a handcrafted angel made by former Hospice employee Gwyn Stone, of Stone Cottage Crafts. Each angel is packaged with a tea light to truly bring this piece to life. A limited supply of angels are sold for $25 individually, or can be packaged with an ornament and a luminary for a total of $40.
Luminaries will be displayed at the Hospice of Davidson County campus located at 200 Hospice Way, Lexington, NC throughout the holiday season. Each luminary will hold a card honoring or memorializing a loved one. Beginning on Friday, December 2, the community is invited to safely and respectfully drive through campus to experience the luminaries at their leisure.
The Night of Reflection annual events are set for Tuesday, December 6 from 5-7 p.m. at the bandstand/gazebo in downtown Thomasville and in Lexington on Thursday, December 8 from 5-7 p.m. at the Davidson County Historical Museum on Courthouse Square. At these free, floating events, community members can experience the beauty of luminaries while listening to music, enjoying light refreshments, having an opportunity for prayer or reflection, and learning about hospice care in Davidson County.
Ornaments may be picked up beginning on Monday, November 28 from the Hospice Administrative Building, open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or at either Night of Reflection event. Proceeds from the ornaments and luminaries are designated for the compassionate care and grief support of the Agency’s patients and families facing a life-limiting illness.
To purchase ornaments, luminaries, and/or angels, please visit hospiceofdavidson.org or call (336) 474-2069.
