Sunapee Region VNA Offers Lights for Hospice Care

— The Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice is again hoping to “light the way for hospice care” with a fundraising effort called “Hospice Lights.” As it did last year, the organization is providing area businesses with posters, small note cards and strings of white lights. The businesses then sell individual bulbs for $2 each and buyers can write the name of a loved one on the card if they desire.

“Many businesses last year simply tied the cards onto the string next to each bulb,” the organization said in a news release. “As bulbs are sold, the light strings get brighter, each light honoring someone’s life and memory.” The fundraising effort runs through Nov. 30. Almost 30 businesses from New London, Sunapee, Newbury, Lebanon and other towns have signed up to sell the bulbs — up from 17 last year. For more information, visit or call 603-526-4077.
