Where does the time go!  Our first year anniversary in the new Pet Memorial Center was December 21, 2013. The year has been filled with many memorable moments. We welcome the community to share in the beautiful grounds and the new Pet Memorial Center. 

We continue to hold monthly grief support meetings the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 until 8:30pm.  We welcome anyone who would like to attend.  Sessions are relaxed, comforting, and beneficial to anyone moving through the journey of grief and healing.   

Our first scheduled grand opening on March 24, 2013 was snowed out!  It was rescheduled for Memorial Day weekend.  On Sunday, September 8th, National Pet Memorial Day, we commemorated the lives of our beloved pets and celebrated our 40th Anniversary.  The event included a blessing of the animals and a tour of the facility.

Saturday, December 14th was our first annual Holiday Celebration of Life.  The facility was filled with family and friends of our pets in a special walk down memory lane dedication, officiated by Nancy Piper, President, Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens.  The evening included honoring memories and sharing stories for our pets past and present. A memorial table was setup to honor our special companions. Many attendees brought a picture, framed or unframed, to place on the table and made personalized ornaments and filled the Christmas tree with the wonderful warm spirit of love and peace in honor of our pets.  There were refreshments and a special candle lighting ceremony.

Our loving, compassionate Care Team members stand ready to assist you with any of your needs.   We wish everyone a blessed holiday season!
