Love Light donations rise
The 22nd annual Love
Lights was a glowing success.
Sponsored by the WITC-Ashland Alumni Association,
Love Lights helps to raise scholarship funds for Wisconsin Indianhead Technical
College students. Members of the community purchased 527 bulbs to honor living
or deceased loved ones, military personnel and even pets.
Alumni Association raised $2,635 – a $355 increase from last year – to be used
for scholarships for WITC students.
“During each of its 22
years, Love Lights has grown,” said Robyn Lulich, college advancement associate.
“For some families, Love Lights has become part of their holiday traditions.
It’s a great way to honor a loved one and support a worthy cause.”
For the last 22 years, the WITC-Ashland Alumni Association has sponsored Love
Lights, an event that raised funds for scholarships while honoring loved ones.
Lights are sold to honor those who are deceased, living or serving in the
military. The Love Lights tree remains lit outside the Ashland Campus throughout
the holiday season.
Those who braved the
elements at the December 5 ceremony honored their loved ones through the reading
of their names and photograph slide show. Attendees were also treated to a
performance by the Saron Lutheran Hand Bell Choir and enjoyed holiday
