Happy Anniversary to Us!

25 years ago Light Up Your Life became a registered society, serving the Tri-Municipal region.  Help us celebrate this momentous occasion!  We served cake in each of the 5 communities, rode in a 1956 Mercury in the Stony Plain Parade on June 3, and much more.  

We're also thrilled to announce the planting of the special "Anniversary Garden" with help from Kiwi Nurseries outside the WestView Health Centre Hospice for the enjoyment of residents and guests for years to come.  Official dedication of the Garden was on September 14, 2017.  More information and pictures on our WestView Health Centre Hospice page!
