Kearney—Good Samaritan will continue a community tradition that began last year.
The hospital is celebrating the Advent season with a tree lighting ceremony for the community at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27 in the hospital's main lobby.
The hospital will light its 15-foot Christmas tree for the first time this season during a brief ceremony that will include carols. The ceremony will be followed with refreshments in the hospital's new dining room.
When the tradition of decorating Christmas trees began in the 16th century, candles were used to illuminate the handmade trinkets that adorned the trees' branches. Today, our trees are decorated with lights, ornaments, tinsel, maybe a candy cane or two.
Good Samaritan invites everyone to come out and get into the holiday spirit with them!
