The Cemtery Committee, and Town Council was pleased to see the arrival of the new Columbarium yesterday at the cemetery. The Cremation Columbarium looks very nice and has 48 doors each capable of holding 2 urns. Columbariums are becoming more popular in cemeteries offering an alternative resting place for the cremated remains of loved ones.

The Cemetery Committee started exploring the possibility of adding a columbarium to the cemetery in 2014. The Committee explored a variety of options and made a recommendation to Town Council to look at the possibility of forming a partnership with Swift Current Monumental. Town Council accepted the recommendation and struck a partnership with Swift Current Monumental. As part off the agreement Town Council agreed to pay for the cement pad and Swift Current Monumental supplied the Columbarium.

More details, including pricing will be made available shortly. We will keep you posted.

Mayor Campbell
