District A4 Memorial Forest

Dedicating a tree in the Memorial Forest is a unique way to celebrate the life of a loved one and honour their memory. As a symbol of strength, shelter and durability, a living tribute can be a source of comfort and meaning.

The District A4 Memorial Forest program was established in 2015 when the District acted on a request from Multiple District A for each District to have their own Memorial Forest site as the Breslau site was running out of space. After exploring several sites we were able to join forces with Innovative Community Support Services who operates several group homes in the Orleans area including a farm where the Memorial Forest will be located at 9478 Russell Road in Navan, Ontario.

The Memorial Forest currently generates funds for the maintenance and improvements of the District A4 Memorial Forest.

Trees planted in the Memorial Forest are in memory of a Lion or Innovative Community Support Services family or friends. The name of the deceased is inscribed on a plaque and placed at the base of the tree. An In Memoriam certificate, stating that a tree is planted in memory of the deceased, is sent to a designated family member or friend on the donor’s behalf. Each year a dedication service is held at the Memorial Forest and a dedication service brochure is printed with the names of those for whom a tree has been planted in the preceding year.

Innovative Community Support Services (ICSS) is a non-profit charitable organization that is committed to creating and providing families & individuals with innovative, high quality and cost effective community based programs and services that promote a strong sense of well being while making a positive contribution to our culturally diversified community.
