Each year, Hospice Orillia hosts two memorial events; the Garden of Remembrance and Candles of Remembrance. Each event is unique in its own way, providing community members with the opportunity to come together to remember those no longer with us. While we have seen a shift in how these events are presented over the years, one thing that has remained steadfast is our communities’ commitment to surround each other with love and comfort during these difficult times.

The 2024 Garden of Remembrance will take place Tuesday, June 25th at 6:30 pm at Couchiching Beach Park in Orillia. 

In an effort to embrace community connection, this event will be offered as an in-person, intimate memorial event with a virtual component for those unable to attend in person.

The interactive ceremony will include music, poetry, readings and more importantly a time to reflect and be with others who have experienced loss. 

To help our team with the planning process for this year’s ceremony, we are asking the community to RSVP by completing the form below. We hope to see you on June 25th.
