An annual event that pays tribute to the lives and memories of loved ones will return to Semiahmoo Shopping Centre this weekend.

Celebrate a Life, hosted by the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society, will launch its 25th year on Saturday (Dec. 5) at 1 p.m., in a ceremony that is to include remarks by White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin and Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg.

The event, which runs until Dec. 23, invites residents to hang a dove on the memorial tree at the mall, in honour of a loved one who has passed away.

Society volunteers will also be on hand to offer support and information to anyone who may need it.
