Love Light Tree

The Love Light Tree has been a Marshall County Hospital tradition for the last 18 years. The project is sponsored by the hospital Auxiliary. Members work hard throughout the year to raise funds for unbudgeted hospital expenses. The Love Light Tree is their largest fundraiser.

The tree lighting is a community event. The children's community choir from Benton First Baptist Church sings Christmas songs and some selections from their holiday musical program. The brass ensemble from Marshall County High School performs Christmas songs for the crowd. Refreshments are served following the program.
