Fishermen’s Hospital celebrated the season on Dec. 7 by inviting the community for an afternoon of fun. And when darkness fell, organizers flipped the switch on the tall tree of lights atop the hospital to a chorus of “oooooh’s” and “aaaahhhh’s.” There was dancing, cookies and much more at the holiday event.
