Antelope Valley Hospital Continues its Traditional Tree Lighting Ceremony

  • Posted On:

AVH helps bring the holiday spirit to patients, staff and the community that visit the hospital.

WHAT: Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) will continue the holiday tradition of its annual tree lighting ceremony. With everything going on in the world, AVH wanted to continue this heartwarming event to bring a little joy to our patients, staff and the entire AV community. The festivities will take place outside the main hospital entrance and will include the telling of the AVH Christmas tree story, lighting of the tree, and refreshments.

Given COVID restrictions, AVH is encouraging the community to join the celebration as it livestreams the festivities on the Antelope Valley Hospital Facebook page.

WHY: The AVH Christmas tree is a live pine tree that was planted in front of the hospital more than 20 years ago, to honor the memory of a young patient. Today that tree reaches into the sky and becomes an even more beautiful focal point when it is decorated for the holidays. This celebratory tree lighting ceremony is held to honor the patients and community during the holiday season.
