St. Anthony Continues Tradition
Tuesday, 19 DECEMBER 2017

St. Anthony Regional Hospital is sharing the message of Christmas with the community and visitors in a very big way again this Photo credit: Jeff Storjohann, Daily Times Heraldyear. The message proclaims "A Child is Born" and illuminates in the windows of the surgery center's fourth floor. The greeting, which affirms St. Anthony's Catholic heritage, is designed to spread goodwill to all.

 

The "A Child Is Born" message was a brainchild of Ed Smith, St. Anthony President and CEO, who had seen a similar display in Chicago. He shared the idea with Lisa Kouri, St. Anthony Materials Management Director, who collaborated with Stone Printing in Carroll to bring the idea to life. The panels are 8 feet high by 6 feet wide, and the letters span 4.5 feet square – large enough for passersby to see.

 

"The message 'A Child is Born' is a great celebration of the Christmas season," Smith said. "We invite everyone to add St. Anthony as a destination for their holiday lighting viewing in the community and to remember the true meaning of the Christmas holiday."

 

St. Anthony staff installed the panels on December 4, and the message will shine each night through Christmas. This unique and special holiday tradition has become a mainstay at St. Anthony, five years and still going strong.
