Annual Dr. Herman C. Ensor Lights of Love event to benefit Hospice of Cullman County

CRMC Foundation event honors/remembers Cullman citizens

CULLMAN — This holiday season, the Cullman Regional Medical Center’s Foundation’s 21st annual Dr. Herman C. Ensor Lights of Love Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will once again benefit Hospice of Cullman County. This annual ceremony allows members of Cullman and the surrounding area to honor or remember family and community members. This year’s event will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, in the Col. Cullmann Room at CRMC. The event is named in honor of the late Dr. Herman C. Ensor for his many contributions to the community and to Cullman Regional Medical Center. Dr. Ensor was a member of Cullman’s medical community and is fondly remembered by those who knew him as a caring and dedicated physician. Ensor was recruited to Cullman Hospital in 1975 and helped found the first Obstetrics & Gynecology practice in the area. He helped to found the CRMC Foundation in 1977 and served as president of the CRMC Medical Staff and Chairman of the Board of Directors. In 1991, Dr. Ensor created the Lights of Love Tree Lighting Ceremony in order to honor and remember those lost during the year.

Your gift of $20, $40, $60 or more will place a light on the tree as a tribute to someone special to you. Your tax-deductible gift will help support CRMC’s Hospice of Cullman County in its continuing effort to provide excellent end-of-life care to everyone in our community.

Acknowledgement cards will be sent to those you have honored and to the families of those being remembered. Please only one acknowledgement per contribution.

  • WSCC farm exhibition.jpg A new exhibition at the Burrow Museum features rural farm scenes

    Dozens of prints depicting rural life are now on display at the Burrow Museum in an exhibition entitled “Days Gone By.”
    The exhibition is on loan to the museum from Grover and Irma Reeves of Vinemont, who have been collecting prints that remind them of the past and, in some cases, their own life for about 10 years. Their daughter Jeanne, who works for Cotton Incorporated, would attend conferences where one of their favorite artists would be selling prints. She would buy some of those prints and introduced her parents to his work.
