Service of Remembrance and Memorial Brick Dedication

The event scheduled on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.

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 that has been placed in the brick walk around the fountain near Founders Hall, also during the past year.

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

Ring and Remember

Another unique event to celebrate the lives of loved ones is “Ring & Remember,” hosted by Hospice Alliance in November in concert with National Hospice and Palliative Care Awareness Month. The 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

Each summer, children and young adults from the community are invited to the Hospice House Garden at Hospice Alliance for a flower planting event. The children have the opportunity to paint a small flower pot and plant a flower in memory of their special person to take home. Refreshments, music and fun activities are part of this event.
