The Edmonds Celebration of LightsEach light you light is a donation to the City of Edmonds Youth Scholarship Fund
In 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 they 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 January 2, 2013. After the holidays, this tree will be planted in the interior of Yost Park.
Each year the City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department receives numerous requests for assistance and provides approximately $4,000 in scholarships. The Celebration of Lights program has raised $9,980 for the Youth Scholarship Fund.
To light a light, call 425-771-0230 and they’ll be happy to send you a form, or stop by the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main Street, Edmonds.
