Staff from Hulse, Playfair & McGarry funeral services joined the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation to dedicate a white oak tree at the funeral provider’s Kemptville Chapel on Wednesday, May 18. The tree commemorates HPM’s long-time commitment to the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation’s memorial tree program, having uplanted 30,000 trees on behalf of every client family served since 2001. The Foundation’s Memorial Trees program, plants local, native seedlings in the Rideau Valley watershed. The funeral home hit the milestone last year, but due to Covid we were only now able to get together to celebrate.
