Memorial Forest


Commemorate the life of a loved one by planting a tree - a living memorial that will grow and flourish over the years. A tree symbolizes strength, shelter and durability; it is a living tribute and a source of comfort to those who have suffered loss. Established on June 1, 1998, by Ron and Carolyn Brown, the Memorial Forest began with the planting of a tree in the name of Lion and Lions Foundation Charter Member, Stew O'Brien, P.C.C.

It is $250.00 CAD for the tree, planting and services.

  • Lions Foundation's Memorial Forest is located in Breslau, Ontario, at the Dog Guide training and breeding centre.
  • Each tree will be marked with the name of the deceased honouree.
  • The family of the deceased will receive an "In Memoriam" card stating that a tree has been planted in memory of their loved one.
  • Recognition will take place at an annual dedication ceremony on the 2nd Saturday of June.
  • Order deadline is May 8, 2015 for the June 13, 2015 Dedication Service.
