May Events

  • Mother's Day
    Sunday, May 12, 2019 : 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM
    Traditionally Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate Mom. To acknowledge the love she has for her family. To thank her for her guidance, her strength and her ability to light up a room with her laughter.
    For those who have lost their Mother, wife, or a child, Mother's Day can be a difficult time. On Sunday, May 12th, Brockie Donovan will be handing out complimentary roses at Rosewood Memorial Gardens from 11 am – 3 pm. Honour your Mom by laying a rose at her place of rest.

June Events

  • Gossip in the Graveyard
    Saturday, June 8, 2019 : 7:00 PM to Sunday, June 9, 2019 : 3:15 PM
    For the past twelve years, we have been involved in staging a historical tour of the Brandon Cemetery. Many people don’t fully realize the number of famous (and infamous) people buried there. It is our intention to educate participants through entertainment to raise money for a local charity. Local actors of Assiniboine Theatre Company portray the roles of these remarkable ‘residents’ of the cemetery, and share personal biographical details with participants.

    This "lively" two hour interactive walking tour provides an opportunity for visitors to take a step back in time and to "meet" the colourful and inspiring individuals who have helped in shaping the Brandon we know today. The characters of Brandon's past literally come alive to tell their tales and offer some juicy bits of gossip to those plucky participants who venture through their hallowed resting grounds.

    100% of the proceeds are donated to a local charity each year and we are proud to have raised close to $25,000 since 2007. This year the proceeds will be donated to HELPING HANDS.

    Saturday, June 8th, 2019 at 7:00pm & 7:15pm
    Sunday, June 9th, 2019 at 3:00pm & 3:15pm

    LOCATION: Brandon Municipal Cemetery

    TICKET PRICE: $15.00

    Please call Kelly at (204)724-2682 to order tickets.

December Events

  • Tree of Memories Community Candlelight Memorial Service
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 : 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
    The Brockie Donovan 22nd Annual Tree of Memories Community Candlelight Memorial Service is a special evening that allows members of our community to join together in remembering our loved ones who are no longer with us to celebrate the holidays.

    Each year, members of our community are invited to place an ornament, bearing the name of their loved one, upon the Brockie Donovan Tree of Memories just prior to the service. This symbolic gesture allows each of us the opportunity to take a moment during busy holiday celebrations to truly reflect and appreciate all that our loved ones have brought to our lives. The staff and volunteers at Brockie Donovan are responsible for preparing and handing out ornaments at the church.

    The 21st Annual Tree of Memories will be held on Thursday, December 6th, 2018 at 7:00 pm. Please call us at (204) 727-0694 or (204) 724-2682 to reserve your personalized ornament.

    DATE: Thursday, December 5th, 2019
    TIME: 7:00 p.m.
