Reminder: Light a light for someone you love this season, and benefit youth scholarships


5a31d92d-3b53-488f-b987-755f3884c516In the spirit of giving, light a light this holiday season for someone you love, something you wish for, or in remembrance of a loved one. Each light you light is a donation to the City of Edmonds Youth Scholarship Fund that enables Edmonds’ children to participate in Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services programs who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity.

A living fir tree is strung with lights and placed at the entrance of the Frances Anderson Center. Donate $5 per light and the city will note your donation on the main floor bulletin board of the Frances Anderson Center. The living fir tree will be lit the week of Thanksgiving through Jan. 2. After the holidays, this tree will be planted in the interior of one of the city’s parks.

Each year the City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department receives numerous requests for assistance. To light a light, call 425-771-0268 and they will send you a form. Or pick up a form from the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St., Edmonds.
