2012 Share the Light Campaign…

The 2012 Share the Light campaign was dedicated to family and friends who have battled cancer and proceeds from the sale of Christmas bulbs support the Marvine Ranch Cancer Screening fund. The annual event sponsored by White River Electric Association, Meeker Fire and Rescue, Pioneers Medical Center and Pioneers Healthcare Foundation lights up the two Christmas trees on the south lawn of the Rio Blanco County courthouse Dec. 5. Cancer survivors, including Sue Duke and Jean Wood were recognized before Sue Duke was given the honor of turning on the lights.
