September Mon

6th Annual Community Remembrance Service

Start at:
6:00 PM
Heritage Memorial Garden, 545 W. Western Avenue, Muskegon, MI 49440
“Very thoughtful. Loved the event and remembering those that have gone home.” – 2018 Attendee

The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice is hosting the 6th Annual Community Remembrance at Heritage Memorial Garden in downtown Muskegon.

A program encompassing beautiful music, readings and bulb planting to help individuals and families in our community to both mourn the death and honor the life of a loved one.  This program is open to anyone who has had a loss and need not have had hospice care.  The annual Community Remembrance is held at the Heritage Memorial Garden located at 545 West Western Avenue and welcomes 80-100 attendees each year.  Local community supporter, Pam Babbitt developed the beautiful garden in honor of her late husband; a haven located in downtown Muskegon and an incredible representation of the love that remains even after a person dies.

In our culture, mourning is becoming increasingly taboo. Grief is a natural and normal response to loss, and mourning is how one heals.  It is our privilege to offer this opportunity to mourn and heal in an environment of acceptance and understanding.  If you would like to participate in this meaningful event, please RSVP by Monday, September 16, 2019 by calling 231.728.3442 or email us at
