Public library hosts holiday tree

Beginning Monday, Nov. 29, community members are invited to remember or honor their loved ones by donating a dollar or more to place an ornament on the Bluffton Public Library's holiday tree. The ornaments will serve as reminders for lives well-lived as well as in honor of those still living.
