Service of Remembrance and Memorial Brick Dedication

Our 2024 event will be held on Wednesday, June 26th, from 5:00 - 6:00pm at Kemper Center, Kenosha.

Each summer, in June, Hospice Alliance hosts a gathering of staff, families, and friends to honor the loved ones who have passed in our care. All community members are welcome to attend the free event at Kemper Center in Kenosha.

Special attention is given to those who have lost a loved one during the previous year, and to those who purchased a Memorial Brick laid at our Founders Hall brick walk during the past year.

Featuring live music, inspirational readings and the dedication of the bricks, the program is outdoors, weather permitting.

Order bricks for your loved one.

Ring and Remember

Our 2024 event will be held on Thursday, November 14th, from 5:00 - 6:00pm at Kemper Center, Kenosha.

Our “Ring & Remember" event is held to honor loved ones towards the end of the year, and takes place during November - National Hospice and Palliative Care Awareness Month. This free event is open to the public. The evening features live music and inspirational readings.

“Ring & Remember” was inspired by a poem entitled “The Meaning of the Bell,” which suggest a gentle, comforting way to work through our grief. Personalized “Ring & Remember” bells to honor your loved ones are available and come with a copy of the inspiring poem.

The Meaning of the Bell
Place this bell in a location

you will pass by several times a day and
each time you pass, ring the bell
and recall a memory sweet and clear
of a loved one you hold dear.
Gradually, move the bell to
a location less noticed, but
continue to ring the bell
and recall a memory.
By ringing the bell, you will call on
memories, even at random times,
and they will help you cope with your loss.
We hope this little bell helps you-
and reminds you that you are not alone.

Planting Memories

Our 2024 event will be held on Thursday, August 15th, from 5:30pm - 6:30pm at Hospice Alliance.

Each year, children, teens and their adult chaperones from the community are invited to our Hospice House Garden for a meaningful flower planting activity. Children have the opportunity to paint and plant a small flowerpot in memory of a loved one lost, and take it home with them to cherish. Join us for a bit of summer fun, refreshments, music and community!
