    Please join us as we remember and celebrate our loved ones before the holidays begin. 

    Come out and listen to our guest speaker, Joel Harden, MPP, in Beechwood’s Sacred Space, 280 Beechwood Avenue. 

    Participants will enjoy the music of our pianists, Scott Voelzing and Barrie Marfleet, and our harpist, Keilah Morrison-Partridge, as they hang their personalized ornaments on the Tree of Life. The candlelight ceremony will offer time for personal reflection about what our loved ones mean to each of us.

    Tickets are $15 per adult, children under 16 are $5 each. Additional ornaments are $5 each. We invite everyone to register online by November 28 @
