Hospice of Santa Barbara and the City of Carpinteria began an exciting new tradition at this year’s Light Up a Life event in Carpinteria.

The City of Carpinteria loaned the nonprofit an 18-foot native living pine tree (pinus eldarica) for the remembrance event held last Saturday at the Seal Fountain at Linden Plaza in Carpinteria. Light Up a Life attendees hung memorial stars on the tree in remembrance and memory of their loved ones.

After the holiday season, the tree will be donated to the Carpinteria Parks & Recreation Department and planted in El Carro Park in Carpinteria.

Hospice of Santa Barbara also hosted Light Up a Life events in Goleta and Santa Barbara earlier this month.

Light Up a Life memorial stars will be sold throughout December and are now available at the following locations:

» Anna’s Bakery in Camino Real Marketplace

» Lobero Theatre box office (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday)

» Curious Cup Bookstore, 929 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria

» Peebee & Jay’s, 1007 Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria

» Montecito Bank & Trust, 1023 Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria

» Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100; click here or by call 805.563.8820

A $15 or more donation is suggested for each star, and all proceeds support Hospice of Santa Barbara.

Hospice of Santa Barbara “volunteers” its free professional counseling and care management services to more than 600 children and adults every month who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
