After a two-year delay due to the pandemic, Mother's Day flowers will be returning to the Mountain View Cemetery.
On Mother's Day, the City of Lethbridge Parks & Cemeteries team try to help honour the memory of loved ones by providing a free rose to visitors.
The cemeteries staff first began offering the flowers on Mother's and Father's Day in 2018, and ran the initiative again in 2019. They received positive feedback and visitors found it to be a great idea and appreciated the gesture from the City.
In 2020 and 2021, due to distancing and restriction rules, the initiative did not run and was missed by both staff and visitors.
The cemeteries staff are pleased to bring back the program and offer flowers to visitors this upcoming Mother's Day. As Mother's Day is one of the busiest days of the year at the cemetery, staff want to help make the visit special.
Roses are available to the first 250 visitors. The roses can be picked up beside the Mountain View Cemetery office located at 1210 Scenic Drive South, on Sunday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until they are gone.
The cemeteries staff will also be offering flowers on Father's Day which falls on Sunday, June 19.
