Celebrate a Life returns to Peninsula

An annual tradition that invites residents to pay tribute to loved ones and supports hospice programs is underway at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in South Surrey.

White Rock/South Surrey Hospice Society's Celebrate a Life campaign runs through Dec. 23, and features a memorial tree on which those interested may hang a dove.

Information on hospice and its programs is also available, and society volunteers are on hand to listen to and speak with individuals about their loss, during a time when coping may be more difficult.

Hospice acting executive director Theresa Robson said the event, which launched Dec. 1, is "always a real reminder to our community that our hospice society, staff and volunteers are here for them when they need us, with compassionate comfort and care."
