Cheryl Schweizer photo Okanogan Douglas Hospital public relations director Brenda White adds another memorial snowflake to the Tree of Lights. Okanogan Douglas Hospital's Tree of Lights honors loved ones For many years the Okanogan Douglas Hospital Guild has put up a Christmas tree in the hospital's lobby, filled with sparkling snowflake ornaments. They are a way to honor friends and loved ones. Each ornament bears a name; names also are inscribed on a bulletin board next to the tree. Some people named are still alive, others are not, but all are remembered at Christmas time on the Tree of Lights. A monetary donation ($2 minimum) to the Guild is requested for each memorial. They can be mailed c/o Lois Walsh. Box 1196, Brewster, or left at the hospital with Cody Benner in the administration wing. Checks should be made out to the hospital guild.

(NAPS)--The holidays are a fun time to celebrate with family and friends. Of course, food is always a big part of holiday cele- brations. Maraschino cherries with their bright red color are a festive addition to holiday cookies, desserts and drinks. One festive idea is to let the kids in the family help make chocolate-covered cherries. Just melt semisweet or white chocolate chips. Dip maraschino cherries with stems in the melted choco- late, then set them on waxed paper. Refrigerate until set. Stock up on maraschino cher- ries during the holidays to deco- rate cookies--these can be colorful gifts as well as tasty party fare. Cherries are a fun garnish for hol- iday platters. Combine them with sprigs of mint and slices of" oranges or lemons. In addition, no holiday drink is complete without at least one maraschino cherry. You can easily turn that peren- nial holiday favorite eggnog-- into a special treat by adding maraschino cherries. Here's how: Use prepared eggnog (available at supermarkets during the holiday season). Drain a jar of maraschino cherries, reserving the juice. Put cherries in ice cube trays (one in each compartment) then fill the trays with about one cup of eggnog. Freeze until solid. Mean- while, stir reserved cherry juice into one quart eggnog; refrigerate until ready to use. When serving, place eggnog ice cubes in glasses, then ill] with cherry-flavored eggnog.
