Tree of Lights

WINTER 2019

At locations around the Columbia Valley
  • Invermere Library
  • Radium, Municipal Office
  • Fairmont Lions’ Club
  • Canal Flats, Discovery Centre

On Friday, November 29th at 6:30 four trees will be lit in remembrance of those who are no longer with us.  Here are some images from last year.  If you would like to purchase a light in remembrance of a loved one, please click here. The names of all who are being remembered this year are added to the Book of Remembrance which is permanently housed in the Hospice Resource Centre in Frater Landing in Invermere.

This event is sponsored by the Invermere Health Care Auxiliary.  All proceeds go to support our Bereavement Program.

To purchase a light in memory of a loved one, $10 per light, click here.  You will be given a commemorative card with their name on it and their name will be listed in the Remembrance Book housed in the Hospice Resource Centre.

Thank You

We would like to acknowledge and thank the Invermere Health Auxiliary Society as the annual sponsor for the Tree of Lights.

We also wish to sincerely thank all of those that so graciously gave their time and made donations to the event.  We could not do it without you!
