Oconto Falls – The Partners of HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital invite the community to participate in Love Lights, an annual Christmas fundraiser.
Love Lights offers people the opportunity to purchase a light in memory of a loved one. It is then placed on a Christmas tree located in the main lobby area of HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital. The names the lights shine for are also displayed next to the tree throughout the holiday season.
