Fauquier Health Lights for Life Celebration December 7

The Fauquier Hospital Auxiliary’s annual program to honor loved ones with holiday lights will be held this year on Wednesday, December 7. Hospital supporters will gather in the Sycamore Room at 7 p.m. to watch while Hospital Hill is lit up for the first time this season.

Reverend Richard (Dick) Winter will be honored as this year’s Top-of-the-Tree nominee. The Rev. Winter arrived in Warrenton to serve as pastor of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church in 1951. He quickly became active in the community, serving as a volunteer fireman and as chaplain of the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Department. He has been and is still active in several community organizations. At Fauquier Hospital, he participated in the dedication of the hospital in 1954 and at the groundbreaking for the hospital expansion in 1976. Reverend Winter has served his church, his community and Fauquier Hospital for six decades. Currently, he is the Minister Emeritus of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church.

The choir from the Warrenton Presbyterian Church will sing in the season and young pianist Madeline Clore will entertain visitors as well.
