Is there a deadline for this project?

Students will make 150 candles to be used at Hospice’s Annual Memorial Tree Service on December 3rd, 2018. This event commemorates individuals who died through a meaningful service; names are read, and after a moment, an evergreen tree is lit with holiday lights in honor of these individuals. Participants in the audience each get a candle at the start of the service and, once candles are lit, the group sings Silent Night.

Students are welcome to come to the Memorial Tree Service on December 3rd at 5pm at 320 Leadville Ave Ketchum, ID.

Candles need to be thick enough to have a cardboard safety sleeve fit atop of them to catch wax drips. Candles need to be completed and dropped off to hospice office by November 26th, 2018.
