To remember and honour in a dignified and respectful way the lives of the 1511 people buried in the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery and to acknowledge their contributions to our community.

We will be gathering to do some yard work and freshen up the grounds.
Grass/Hedge clippers and Lawn-edger will be useful. You are welcome to join us. Donations of artificial flowers would also be appreciated.
