Celebration of Life: Animal Memorial

Saturday, Dec. 28: 5-7 pm

 To celebrate the lives of beloved animals we've lost this year, Montrose Farms is hosting a memorial bonfire. Slips of paper will be provided to write the name of your loved one on, to be added to the fire, following a special reading of the Rainbow Bridge poem.

Come honor your special animal with us as we remember the joy they brought to our lives and the legacy they leave behind.

Hot cider and tissues provided.
