Since 2018, Willamette Valley Hospice has offered our community the opportunity to celebrate, honor, and remember those who have died and are missing from our lives at the Reflections on the River event.
The 4th annual Reflections on the River will consist of two FREE events:
• A live River Walk – Thursday, September 9, 2021 from 7:30 – 9:00 pm at Salem’s Riverfront Park. You are invited to join us for a self-paced walk and time of reflection. Personalized luminarias will line the paths of the park.
• Reflections on the River online broadcast – September 23, 2021 at 7:30 pm. This free, 45-minute community celebration is being created for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one. We’ll honor our veterans with a flag ceremony, share words of inspiration, music from our music therapists, family experiences, and remember the Oregonians who have died from COVID-19 with a special tribute.
The Reflections on the River program may be viewed at these locations:

It is with heavy hearts, tears, and sadness that, due to the increase in Covid-19 cases, the Englewood Forest Festival Board has chosen to cancel this year’s event. The Board believes that with our goal to share joy and celebrate community in our public spaces, comes the responsibility to that same community to recognize and promote health, wellness, and safety. While we are deeply saddened by this decision, the board unanimously believes it to be the right thing to do at this time.
Thanks to everyone for understanding, and we’ll be back next year!
