A Look Back at 30 Incredible Years

Have you read the history of our society? https://www.lightupyourlifesociety.org/index.php/our-history/

One of the original founding members of our Society and its Chair for many years, Linda McCreath, revisited that history recently as we celebrate 30 years of serving the tri-municipal region. Please visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lightupyourlifesociety and scroll through the posts for her thoughtful reflections on our history, and what that history means in the 21st century.

Our Society and our hard-working volunteers are more committed than ever to provide a warm and compassionate end-of-life home for those who need it. We hope you will join with us this year to celebrate our milestone anniversary and continue to support us in our worthwhile work.
