A COMFORTING SYMBOL OF LIFE…
Tree Program default
A tree represents quiet strength, beauty, longevity and peacefulness – an ideal memorial to a person’s life. McInnis & Holloway’s Memorial Forests® program allows McInnis & Holloway to give back to the community, by enhancing the growth of parks in the Calgary area. Families are encouraged to come to one of the Memorial Forests® , and enjoy the protected haven they provide.
A LIVING TRIBUTE
The Memorial Forest ®
The Memorial Forest® program offers a special way of memorializing a person who has died and provides families with a meaningful way to deal with a loss. McInnis & Holloway makes every attempt to find appropriate and lasting ways for loved ones to be remembered. In this case, a tree planted will remain a living memorial for families and friends to return to year after year.We had a five year contract with the City of Calgary to plant trees in our Nose Creek Valley Memorial Forest. This contract ended June of 2005 when the City of Calgary decided not to renew the contract for this area. From the start of this Memorial Forest in the year 2000 we have planted 4,200 trees in Nose Creek Valley which includes the trees planted for our final Ceremony for Nose Creek Valley in 2005.We are fortunate that families have two Memorial Forest® locations to choose from. Our LaFarge Meadows Memorial Forest located in Fish Creek Provincial Park (south of Sikome Lake in Calgary) and our Big Hill Springs Memorial Forest located 25 km west of Airdrie, 10 km north of Cochrane on Highway #22.Each year, families are invited to attend a dedication ceremony for each of our Memorial Forests. For dates and times of the dedication ceremonies, see below.If families wish, any family that was served by McInnis & Holloway have a tree planted in memory of one who has died, at no additional cost to the family. Others can purchase, at a minimal cost, one or more trees to add to the Memorial Forest®, through the McInnis & Holloway Flower Shop. Each purchase includes one tree, its planting and maintenance at the Forest site, and the engraving of the deceased’s name on a permanent granite marker. McInnis & Holloway absorbs all other costs in connection to the Forest.
