ive Christmas trees with colored lights line the median in downtown Wedowee every year! Growing up in a small town has so many perks and I have looked forward to this tradition every year since I was a little girl! I was also happy to hear that our new “state of the art” hospital, Tanner Medical Center – East Alabama, will carry on the tradition of the now closed Wedowee Hospital with the Tree of Lights. The tradition allows any one to purchase a light for the tree in honor of, in remembrance of, or in recognition of someone special. Thank you to the Auxiliary of Tanner Medical Center for continuing this thoughtful tradition! Be sure not to miss the Christmas Parade downtown because Santa Claus always makes an appearance that night!
