Tree of Memories honours loved ones

Honour a loved one this holiday season at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, where two Tree of Memories will be available for visitors to place an ornament in remembrance of their loved ones.

The first tree will be located under the dome by the Promontory Green Interment Garden, while a second tree will be displayed at the Bennett Memorial Circle in the centre of the cemetery.

“The holidays are a time of reflection and celebration,” says Norm Ryder, Cemetery Manager. “Placing an ornament on a Tree of Memories can help bring some peace to friends and family during this special time of year.”

Visitors can place an ornament on either tree daily between Saturday, Dec. 7 and Weds., Jan. 8, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery is located at 1991 Bernard Ave. (intersection of Bernard Avenue and Spall Road).

Ornaments from previous years are placed on the memorial trees as a perpetual memory. Those who want to keep their ornaments should retrieve them after Jan. 9 by contacting the Cemetery office at 250-862-5518.

The Trees of Memories program has been offered annually since 1998.
