MF-photo-Sept4Some of the older trees and shrubs close to the grave sites will need to be removed this spring to prevent further damage, which will leave the grounds looking a bit barren.

We are pleased to announce that we are in the process of creating a plan to beautify the Chapel grounds!

We welcome the ability to plant more trees and shrubs in locations that will enhance the historic charm of the Chapel and provide a bit of a sound and visual barrier from Macleod Trail, while not interfering with existing or future grave sites in the cemetery.


The Beautification Project will become our fundraising focus for the next 2-3 years (or for as long as we require funds to complete the project).

There are two ways that you can assist our efforts:

  • We are creating a Beautification Committee to assist with the rollout of the plan, and for the caring and maintenance of the plantings in the Spring of 2016.¬†One of our volunteers has generously offered her time and expertise to research and propose a plan for planting native trees, shrubs and perennials within the historical context of the Chapel and cemetery.
  • You can directly contribute to Beautification Project by making a financial donation through our CanadaHelps page where we have set up a fund for the project.
