Volunteers got the Sally Wellman Memorial Garden looking shipshape.

Sally Wellman garden gets a facelift

The Campbell River Hospice Society gives the Sally Wellman Memorial Garden a face lift.

The Campbell River Hospice Society gives the Sally Wellman Memorial Garden a face lift.

Fifteen hospice volunteers loaded their vehicles with shovels, trowels, gardening gloves and recycling bags and headed down to the Hospice Society’s Sally Wellman Memorial Garden to give the garden a good going over.  Weeds where pulled, plaques where straightened and any unauthorized ornaments where removed.  Please note that any unauthorized plaques or plants that have been placed in the garden after 2007 will be removed as per Hospice’s garden policy and that you may collect the plaques, along with the removed ornaments, from the Hospice office.  Once the cleanup was completed, Steve Morton, CEO and President of Renuable Resources Ltd., donated and delivered12 yards of bark mulch which really put the finishing touches to the garden.

The final addition to the garden is the installation of the new garden signage which was made possible through a donation to the Hospice Society by the Altrusa Club of Campbell River.

The memorial garden, which is located on the Rotary Seawalk, was created by the society to be a special place on our waterfront for all to admire.  It is also a source of comfort to those who wish to remember their loved ones by placing a plaque in the garden.  If you would like to support hospice and purchase a plaque for the garden, call their office for more information, or visit: www.crhospice.org.
