In this space, Halifax Magazine invites local non-profit organizations to share what they do, and how readers can help. If you know an organization that would like to share its story, email the editor: tadams@metroguide.ca.

The Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Garden is a private sanctuary of colourful flowers and sheltering trees, and provides peace and tranquility for veterans who reside at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. The entire garden is wheelchair accessible and fully enclosed, making it a safe haven for the veterans. A cenotaph was erected in the garden to honour those who fought in the world wars and the Korean War.

As a living space, the garden needs continued care and maintenance. Kind individual donors, as well as organizations and community groups, provide a large portion of the funding for the garden.IMG_0747-resized

In addition, military organizations hold annual fundraisers, such as the annual Til We Meet Again concert in partnership with the QEII Foundation. Without community support, the garden would not continue to be a beautiful retreat for veterans to enjoy with their families and caregivers.

Join us on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, Dalhousie Arts Centre for the annual Til We Meet Again concert presented by Maritime Forces Atlantic. An evening filled with inspiring wartime and modern music featuring the Stadacona Band of the Royal Canadian Navy. All proceeds from this concert support the Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Garden at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

For information or to purchase tickets for the concert, please visit artscentre.dal.ca or phone 1-800-874-1669. For more information, contact the QEII Foundation at 902-473-7932.
