2018 Mother’s Day Remembrance Service at Bunurong Memorial Park

Our community gathered at Bunurong Memorial Park to honour our special mothers during the Mother’s Day Remembrance service on Thursday, 10 May. Reflecting on cherished memories, families created messages, lit candles and shared an evening with others during this touching service. The theme for the evening was ‘high-tea’ and included colourful flowers sitting in teacups, which were symbolic of enjoying precious moments together with loved ones over a cup of tea.


We sincerely thank our event partner, Templeton Family Funerals, and SMCT team members for making this event a memorable one for the community members that attended.
