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.”
