of Lights

The Tree of Light project gives the community members an opportunity to place a name in memory or honor of loved ones, family friends and neighbors, or (new this year) a pet. These names go on a wooden memory scroll that is displayed near the Christmas tree on the corner of Larimer Park during the holiday season.

It is through fundraisers such as this one that the Pinegrove Lioness Club provides help for families in Pine Grove, Farmington, Sugar Grove, Freehold, and Elk townships as well as Bear Lake and Sugar Grove boroughs.

The group assists with many community projects such as kindergarten eye screening, scholarships for our seniors from these communities, and assisting members of the community during times of need. Over the past year the Pinegrove Lioness Club has donated more than $12,000 back to the communities.

Pick up a form at local business this week if you would like to be included in the Community Tree of Lights and have it returned to the Pinegrove Lioness Club no later than Nov. 5. There is a $20 donation for a “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” a loved one or a family name. There is a $25 donation for business names, and just a $5 donation for a pet name.
