Light is a symbol of hope in many faiths, cultures and traditions. Doves are a symbol of peace and serenity. For 21 years, our memorial event has offered individuals and families a touching and visible way to remember their loved ones who have died. The Trees are decorated with clear lights and doves, as well as the names of those we wish to remember. All are welcome to participate in this special event. We hope you will visit the trees from December 5, 2013 to January 7, 2014.

Our evening will be filled with music and stories of remembrance followed by the tree Lighting ceremony.
