The Urbanna Beautification Committee and local citizens illuminated the “Lights in Honor or Memory Tree” before last Friday’s Christmas Parade.

For a $5 donation, a clear bulb in memory of a loved one, or a red bulb in honor of a special person, will be hung on the town Christmas tree. Remembrances and designees will be published in the Southside Sentinel.

The committee has specified that all funds raised by this event be donated to charity, and this year’s recipient will be Christmas Friends Inc.

See form on page A6 in this weeks paper to dedicate a light, or please send donations and information to Urbanna Christmas Tree, P.O. Box 255, Urbanna, VA 23175.
