Dec 16, 2022

In what has become an annual tradition, Sunrise Skilled Nursing & Rehab is inviting members of the Virden and surrounding communities to soak up the holiday spirit as they drive through the facility's holiday lights display.

Running from December 1 through December 30 - from dusk until 10 p.m., at the facility's campus at 333 Wrightsman Street in Virden - the display is open for the community to drive through and see the thousands of lights and holiday decorations.

“This is a special time of year and we love seeing the community decorated and all of our neighbors celebrating the joy of the holiday season,” said Patty Barnes, CEO/Administrator of Sunrise. “We enjoy seeing visitors of all ages and from throughout the region drive through the display, enjoying the lights.”

Sunrise Skilled Nursing and Rehab holds multiple events throughout the year as part of its mission to be a good neighbor. “One of our purposes is to give back to the local community, where so many of our residents and staff members grew up,” said Barnes, “That's why we also have annual Easter egg hunts and visits from the Easter Bunny, as well as Halloween trunk-or-treat events, community clinics, healthcare information sessions, and more.”
