Thank You for Coming
Thank you to everyone who attended our Memory Tree Event, December 4, 2016 at the Alberta Children's Hospital. We are honoured that you chose to join us today to remember your precious child and shared stories of your love and loss. Each story is heart-breaking; we send our love this holiday season.
Please Come and Add Your Ornament
We invite all Calgary and area families who are missing a child (17 years old or younger) who has passed away to add their ornament to our tree. The tree is located on the second floor of the Children's Hospital across from the resource library. The tree will be up until the afternoon of January 8, 2017.
While we leave space for new ornaments to be placed on the tree from December 4 to January 8, but we also add many of the ornaments from previous years to the tree once we have moved it into place.
Thank You to Our Sponsors
Once again, thank you to our sponsors who made this event possible. For the 85 attendees, you helped us provide a beautiful new tree, candles for remembrance, volunteers to lead crafts, coffee, tea and hot chocolate plus funds for refreshments and event supplies. We could not host this event without you - thank you.
