Airdrie – Light Up the Tree of Hope
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Wednesday, December 1st, the Airdrie & District Hospice Society is honoured to hold its ninth annual
Tree of Hope celebration at Airdrie City Hall. The Tree will be lit at 7:00 pm that evening followed by a
short non-denominational memorial service for loved ones we have lost. All are invited to attend this free
community event and follow Covid protocols; wearing a mask is encouraged.
“The Christmas season is one of the most difficult to get through when you’ve lost someone close to you,”
notes ADHS Executive Director Lise Blanchette. To remember those who are no longer with us at this time,
the Tree of Hope lighting is a compassionate event to recognize the grief that some community members
must cope with during what is normally one of the happiest celebrations of the year.”
Throughout the month of December, the Hospice Society will be accepting donations through the Tree of
Hope campaign. This year the Society will also be selling beautiful angel and tulip stained-glass ornaments
for $20 apiece. These keepsake ornaments, created locally by Muk-luks Magpies Stained Glass Emporium,
may be purchased in memory of someone who has died or, alternately, individuals may make donations
in a loved one’s memory to the Airdrie & District Hospice Society by calling 403-880-0424 or by visiting
their website at https://www.airdriehospice.ca/. Ornaments will be distributed and names of those we
wish to remember read aloud at the Tree of Hope Lighting on December 1st.
