Friends and families of the residents at Christian Care Center of Bedford County celebrated Christmas early this year with the help of the Bedford County Medical Association Alliance (BCMAA).

BCMAA's annual Lights of Love program decorates a Christmas tree in the lobby of the nursing center with ornaments and lights donated by people in the community.

Sparkling care

Each light on the tree represents a donation made in memory or in honor of someone who has touched the lives of the donors. Each of the ornaments bears the names of the donor and person being honored.

Christian Care Center resident Kathleen Wells flipped the switch to light the Christmas tree. She was assisted by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus as they lit up the lobby.

Members of the Interact Clubs at Cascade High School, The Webb School, and Shelbyville Central High School entertained the crowd gathered for the event by singing Christmas carols.

Helping hand

BCMAA president Barbara Blanton and secretary/treasurer Brenda Monajjem presented CCC administrator Mike Rabuka with a check from the organization. The monies raised for the Lights of Love program will be used to purchase a piece of equipment to be used by the residents and staff of CCC.

BCMAA is a non-profit volunteer organization of physician spouses dedicated to promoting good health to all Tennesseans* and supporting the family of medicine.* *
