Memorial Love Lights and Luminarios will light up Alden Street Friday, Dec. 21at 6:30 p.m. The tradition of the Love Lights started by the Ernest McCallister family in memory of their son Mark took place for many years until family illness prevented them from doing it.

The holidays bring many memories, some sad but it is the happy memories we want to remember about our loved ones therefore the event has come back with Mrs. McCallister assisting the Chamber with this year’s project.

Purchase a Christmas angel in memory of your loved ones. Names will be read as angels are hung on the trees.

Luminarios are a Christian tradition honoring the Christ Child. The Spaniards who settled in New Mexico lit the roadways, hillsides, churches and roofs of their pueblo style homes lighting the way for the Christ Child.

Junior Chamber members from Ray and Hayden High School will be selling luminarios on which you can write names or decorate in memory or in honor of friends and/or family. Proceeds from the luminario sales will go to the ASU Autism/Asperbergers Research Program and the Junior Chamber Scholarship fund.

Love Lights are available at the Chamber office to purchase for $3 and the luminarios for $2.
