Ornaments encouraged over the holidays at Memorial Park Cemetery

Tree of Memories

Those who have lost loved ones can now place an ornament on the Tree of Memories at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.

“While the holidays are a time for celebration, it’s also a time of reflection, where many of us think about those who have passed,” said Tracey Hillis, cemetery manager.

“For friends and family who don’t live near those they wish to remember, or near their final resting place, the Tree of Memories serves as a unique way to pay tribute to a lost loved one during the holidays.”

Starting now, memorial tributes can be left on a large tree under the dome of the Promontory Green Interment Garden. Ornaments can also be hung on the spruce trees surrounding the Legacy Gardens and Bennett Memorial, Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until Friday, Jan. 7, 2022.

If you wish to keep your decoration for future use, they need to be retrieved before Jan. 9, 2022.

More information can be found on the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery website.
