Residents can honour a loved one this holiday season by placing an ornament on a Tree of Memories at the Kelowna Memorial Cemetery.
Visitors can place an ornament on the tree under the dome in Promontory Green Interment Garden or on the spruce trees in Bennett Memorial Circle between Monday, Dec. 7, and Thursday, Jan. 7, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
“The holidays are often a time of reflection and celebration,” says David Gatzke, Cemetery Manager. “The trees provide a unique opportunity for friends and family to celebrate a loved one's life throughout the holiday season.”
The Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery is located at 1991 Bernard Ave., at the intersection of Bernard 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. 8 by contacting the cemetery office at 250-862-5518.
The Tree of Memories program has been offered annually since 1998.
