In celebration of the 30 annual Celebrate A Life, Victoria Hospice has launched an online platform that provides individuals and families a new and unique way to remember their loved ones during the holiday season.

The public can now visit CelebrateALifeVictoria.ca to hang a special, personalized tribute ornament on the new virtual tree. The website allows people to write a personalized message in memory of a loved one, share their tribute through social media, search for tributes and read through the touching messages left by others.

The long-time tradition of hosting the Celebrate A Life display will continue at Hillside Centre from Dec. 1 to 13.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Celebrate A Life non-denominational memorial service on Sunday, Dec. 13 at the University of Victoria Interfaith Chapel from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
