There’s no better way to kick off the holiday season in Winnsboro than with The Wellspring’s Christmas Tree Lighting Event. Join us Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 5:30 p.m. for a holiday celebration featuring live entertainment, a chili cook-off, hot chocolate and tasty treats.

Watch as the magic lights up before your eyes with the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Patriot Square.

You can share the spirit of the season by sponsoring a light on the community Christmas tree to honor or remember a loved one. For each light sponsored, your name and the name of the person you are honoring or remembering will be placed in The Franklin Sun. A personal card announcing your gift will be sent to the person being honored or the family of those being remembered. 

In addition, ornaments with the name of those honored will be placed on Christmas Trees located in front of The Wellspring office located at 303 Prairie Street. Lights are one for $10, five for $30, 10 for $75 and 20 for $125. Forms to purchase lights are available by calling The Wellspring at (318) 412-0226 or by visiting

This thoughtful way of honoring others truly shares the spirit of the season in our community in a way that will continue long after the lights have been put away.
