Plymouth: High School Students Continue Tradition Called Lights of Hope

When they light the town tree to cheers in Plymouth’s Town Square Friday night at 6, the paths through adjacent Brewster Gardens will glow with candles dedicated to sons and daughters, parents and friends. Students of the Plymouth South High School marketing program will continue the new tradition called Lights of Hope. People buy paper bags for $5, decorate them, and lend them to the community project. Internally illuminated, they guide the way along the brook that fed the fields shared by native and immigrant people. The proceeds go to the cancer center at Beth Israel Deaconess in Plymouth.

WATD’s Charles Mathewson has this report.
