Langley Hospice invites folks to its garden

Few would argue the importance of the work of the Langley Hospice. The Langley Hospice Society’s annual garden party allows those who recognize that importance to make a contribution to the organization’s ongoing efforts.

Guests can take part in the party and silent auction on Aug, 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Langley Hospice Supportive Programs Centre at 20660 48th Ave.

Shannon Todd Booth, of the Langley Hospice Society, noted how proud the organization is of its achievements in reaching more people, and advancing the mission to provide compassionate support to help people live with dignity and hope while coping with grief and the end of life.

A new art project and installation created by students from the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Fine Arts Program will be unveiled.

Ryan Jones and Amanda Lemon from the Lemon Love Ride (a ride to support the hospice and its work – www.lemonloveride.tumblr.com) will speak to attendees.

“It is collaborations like these that add tremendous value to the important hospice and palliative care and support programs; individual and group grief support programs for children, teens and adults; education; advocacy; volunteer training; day camp and summer camp programs; and resource library offered through our Langley Hospice Society Supportive Programs Centre and Residence onsite at the Langley Memorial Hospital,” Todd Booth said.

To attend the event or for more information contact Todd Booth at 604-530-1115 or through the website at www.langleyhospice.com.
