Honor loved ones on Tree of Life

Crook County Senior Services (CCSS) is launching this year’s Tree of Life project, a way to honor and remember the people who are special in your life during the holiday season.

In each of the senior centers around the county, a tree will bear lights that each signify an individual. The white lights are in memory of a person who has passed away, while a colored light honors a person who is still alive.

Meanwhile, a list of the names of those people who have been commemorated on the trees, as well as the person who chose to honor them, will be printed in the newspaper at Christmas time.
