This event brings people together in 4 communities (Canal Flats, Fairmont, Invermere and Radium) to light Hospice Trees to commemorate loved ones who are no longer with us. The evening is filled with music, gentle loving words, and special readings of our loved ones’ names.
At present the Hospice Society Hosts 4 events per/year. They are celebrations of each season and help us fund our programs throughout the year.
