Our Events & Special Fundraising
The Williams Lake Hospice Society holds annual Memory Tree Events and has several fundraising projects ongoing in our community.
Memory Tree Celebration
We thank all of you for taking the time in December each year to come to City hall to enter your loved one’s name into our ‘In Memory’ book, add an ornament to the ‘Memory Tree’ and for your continued support for Hospice.
The Memory Tree is set up each year in the City Hall foyer in December. Please feel free to stop by, place an ornament on the tree, take a moment to reflect and remember your loved one or drive by the list Hospice tree outside of City Hall.
The Memory Tree Event has always been an opportunity to take a moment to slow down, take time out of our busy schedules, and remember our family, loved ones and friends who have passed away.
Meals & Memories Cookbook
This project from 2019 was created by the Cross family in loving memory of Pat Cross; wife, mother, grandmother, sister & friend. Pat was the driving force behind setting up an account for the WLHS at the Return-it Bottle Depot. She daily encouraged the community to donate to our program, and when someone didn't know where to donate them, she would quickly suggest Hospice. There are not many of these cookbooks left but you can purchase them through the office, or by calling 250-392-5430.
Memory Seed Program
You may have noticed our wooden boxes around town. Make a donation to the WLHS and plant a Memory Seed in memory of your loved one. Memory Seed Boxes are in these local Businesses for the Month of May: Mint & Lime, Rona, HUB Barton (downtown), the Heeler, Fox Mountain Urban Upcycle, Margett's, Dog'n'Suds, Horsefly Nursery & Marshall's Store at 150 Mile House.
