Commemorative City Programs

 

The City of Armstrong Commemorative Tree Program or Community Bench Program offers a bequest or living legacy. 

 
   

Commemorative Tree Program

Established in 1998, the Commemorative Tree Program was created with the idea that people may appreciate an opportunity to plant a tree in memory of someone special, with a plaque.

In closing, you are invited to participate in this living legacy program, and it will be our pleasure to maintain the trees and cairn to commemorate someone very special to you.

The cost to participate in this program is $500.00.

If you are interested in this program you can contact City Hall at 250-546-3023 for more information or download the form below and return it to City Hall.

Community Bench Program

The Community Bench Program provides a means for individuals, groups of individuals, businesses or organizations to provide funds to the City to dedicate, maintain and replace benches. A bench may be dedicated in memory of someone special or may be dedicated to commemorate a special event or an occasion.Individuals, groups of individuals (such as families), businesses, and other organizations may make a financial contribution towards community benches. The bench program will include a plaque indicating the donor(s) and the dedication.

The cost to participate in this program is $1,700. Should you be unable to contribute the complete amount of a bench and plaque, you may choose to put your name on a waitlist until another donor wishes to contribute the remainder of the amount towards the same bench. This may result in multiple plaques on a single bench.  The amounts to be contributed by each donor would be calculated as the cost of one bench and plaque ($1700) plus the number of additional plaques required ($300 each), divided by the number of donors participating in the joint initiative.

Placement of benches will be determined on an individual basis, with consultation occurring between the donor(s) and City staff, and other agencies as needed. Staff will endeavour to place benches in requested areas.
