The purpose of the visit is to remember and honour in a dignified and respectful way the lives of the 1,511 people buried in the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery and to acknowledge their contributions to our community.
The historic Lakeshore Asylum Cemetery is located (and easy to miss unless you know to look for it) at the north-east corner of Horner Ave. and Evans Ave. Jaan Pill photo
We will be gathering to do some yard work and freshen up the grounds.
Grass/Hedge clippers and Lawn-edgers will be useful. You are welcome to join us. Donations of artificial flowers would also be appreciated.
