PARIS – The Western Maine Veterans’ Advisory Committee is once again offering a chance to honor friends and loved ones by lighting a bulb on the Christmas “Tree of Caring” at the Veterans Home in South Paris.

Bulbs in memory of a deceased loved one, who need not be a veteran, or to honor a special person are $5 each. The funds received will be used exclusively for special activities and needs of the home’s residents.

To purchase a bulb or for more information, contact Pat Young at 743-8084. To send a donation, make checks payable to the Western Maine Veterans Advisory Committee and mail to Young, tree lighting chairman, at 159 Paris Hill Road, South Paris, ME 04281.

The tree lighting will be held at the home at 477 High St., South Paris, at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. There will be music and refreshments in the multi-purpose room following the lighting.
