The upcoming holidays can be daunting when a loved one is no longer with us. Joliet Area Community Hospice hosts its 13th annual Lights of Love Memorial Tribute and Tree Lighting Ceremony for families to honor loved ones who are no longer with us. This event brought to you by Kurtz Ambulance, Busey Bank and The Horton Group will take place Wednesday, November 12, 2018 at the Rialto Square Theater, 102 N. Chicago St., Joliet. Music, poetry, reflections and a beautiful video tribute fill the Rialto Square Theatre with the warmth of memories on the evening before Thanksgiving. Participants receive a keepsake ornament in memory of their loved one along with a memorial ornament. When they hear the name of their loved one, families walk together on the Rialto’s stage to hang memorial ornaments on a Christmas tree. A $20 donation includes a Keepsake ornament and five admission tickets to Lights of Love Memorial Tribute and Tree Lighting Ceremony a part of Home for the Holidays at the Rialto.
