On Oct. 18, 1997 the dedication of “Circle of Life” by Father Dulong and Father John occurred at Queen Elizabeth Park. The “Circle of Life” embraces an oak tree. The tree, with its seasons, symbolizes the seasons in the journey in our lives. It is a quiet place to reflect about life or celebration of life in the passing of loved one.

Each year the Revelstoke Hospice Society holds a Snowflake Ceremony where we invite the community and special guests to participate in speaking and playing music in remembrance of loved ones.

Symbolically we write the names of loved ones on laminated snowflakes and place them on the special oak tree.

Please join us in remembering a friend or loved one by hanging a snowflake in their honour on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at the “Circle of Life” dedication tree in Queen Elizabeth Park.
