We were thrilled to be  back at St. Vital Centre after a year off due to the pandemic. It was wonderful to be there to listen to your stories, see the Tree fill with cards and experience the love and memories brought to the surface by this time of year. Thank you to everyone who made our return possible and those who came out to make us feel welcome.

This year’s Tree collected 923 cards and $10,048 in donations! Thank you SO MUCH!

Memory Tree – December 24, 2021

The Memory Tree, started in 1987, is a special place to help ease the pain of grief during the holiday season.

The holiday season is traditionally a time of joy for most. But, for those grieving, it can inspire feelings of loss, loneliness and social isolation. Many grieving people feel out of step with the world around them, yet are reluctant to admit their pain. The Memory Tree provides a way to acknowledge and remember people who have died.
