The public is invited to join The Compassionate Friends and Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd for the 8th annual Brevity Memorial Dedication Ceremony on Saturday, May 7, 2 p.m., at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, 1991 Bernard Ave.

Parents, siblings, grandparents, family members and others who have suffered from the loss of a child for any reason are invited to join this ceremony.

The Brevity Memorial, installed in 2004, is dedicated to children whose lives were cut short, as symbolized by the life-size bronze statue of two children playing on a tree stump. This year, 16 additional names will be added to the memorial.

This memorial is the result of a partnership between the Kelowna chapter of The Compassionate Friends and the City of Kelowna’s Memorial Park Cemetery. The Compassionate Friends is an international organization dedicated to supporting bereaved parents and their surviving children. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Linda Woods at tcfkelowna@shaw.ca by Friday, May 6.
