Bucket List Festival coming to Chilliwack

It's never too early to think about what should be on your bucket list.

The Bucket List Festival is set for Sept. 27 at the Cultural Centre, brought to you by Chilliwack Hospice Society and the Division of Family Practice.

Several engaging speakers will be helping attendees with practical ideas to make the most of their lives.

"We thought the Bucket List Festival was a great idea for Chilliwack," said Liz Lynch, executive director of Chilliwack Hospice Society.

It dovetails with their educational mandate, she says, and did very well when they held it in the founding city of Victoria last year.

Author and motivational speaker Glenda Standeven, will be the emcee for the day at the Chilliwack event, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a light lunch provided.

Presenters include: Dr. Pippa Hawley, founder of the Bucket List Festivals, Gaby Eirew, Director, of Record Me Now, a free web-based app for creating an audio-video legacy, Cari Borenko Hoffman, Fraser Health Advance Care Planning Project Coordinator, Ken Williams, retired RCMP police officer and Bucket List Adventurer, Doug Rollheiser, Owner/Manager, Roblin Travel, and Dr. Chantal Chris, Chilliwack Division of Family Practice.

The theme of the event is about getting the most out of life when it’s most precious.

Chilliwack Hospice Society is a community based volunteer organization which accepts death as a part of life. They support individuals and families during the dying and grieving process.

"Ultimately Hospice is about living," Lynch adds.

The event takes on the various challenges of aging, health and mobility issues, and also suggests some ways to pursue passions.

Presentations will include:

• The Unwell Traveller

• Advance Care Planning

• Recording Personal Memories

• Holding A Living Wake

• How to Really Talk with Your Doctor
