SOUTH PARIS — Members of the Western Maine Veterans’ Advisory Committee are selling Christmas bulbs for the annual tree-lighting ceremony that will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, at 477 High St.

“The tree has grown immensely over the past several years, and each year we have more lights on it,” said Joe Cooney, co-chairman of WMVAC. “This fundraiser has become a local tradition and our residents look forward to the tree-lighting ceremony held when the tree becomes fully lit.”

The community, staff, residents and families are invited to see the lighting.

The bulbs cost $5 each and may be purchased in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone close to the heart.

Payment can be made by sending a check to Maine Veterans’ Home, c/o Richard Young, 477 High St., South Paris, ME 04281, or by stopping at the facility. Please include the name of the person to be on the bulb and remember to signify whether it is honor of or in memory of that person.
