AUGUSTA, Wis. (WEAU)-- Lights are shining bright as people in Augusta remember loved ones no longer here to enjoy the holidays.

Augusta Health and Rehabilitation lit their Love Light tree Saturday afternoon for a packed open house full of guests. Each year the senior living community lights the tree, which honors loved ones who are living and those who have passed on.

Money collected through Love Light purchases goes toward funding the communities' activities department.

"Our activity department does a great job. We have music weekly and the Love Light Tree donations help pay for our music. The tree is also a remembrance of our loved ones. Anytime we can sit down and remember them is great," executive director Jahn Bradley said.

This is the fifth year the senior living community has hosted the Love Light Tree event.
