The holiday season is officially upon us, and that means two special annual events are taking place at the Villa St. Vincent in Crookston.

    The “Angel Tree” event will happen Dec. 2-3, with daily hours 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Villa St. Vincent will have their angel tree set up with an angel for every resident. People from the community can come to the Villa and pick an angel or two from the tree, go shopping for a gift for their resident and return the gift to the Villa St. Vincent where Santa will distribute before Christmas.

    The second event is “Light up a Life.” Your gift of $5 per name will light a bulb on the Light up a Life Tree. You may donate in memory of or in honor of that special someone. The tree lighting ceremony and reading of all the names will be on Sunday December 8 at 4 p.m. in the Villa St. Vincent Wellness/Activity room. After the ceremony they will finish the evening with coffee and cookies. All are invited to attend.
