Bench Dedication Program

Honour loved ones in a lasting and meaningful way.

Pay homage to a departed loved one, celebrate a milestone, or just mark one of life’s special moments in a lasting and meaningful way.

By extending opportunities to adopt a bench with an custom-engraved metal plaque, this program provides tranquil places for reflection, and pays homage to memories, moments in time and departed loved ones while beautifying our rural landscape.

Each commemorative bench is adorned with a bronze plaque with a personal message. It can mark the memory of a friend or family member, celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or observe any other type of significant event.

The Bench Dedication Program is open to individuals and groups alike.
