After a short program including music, butterflies are distributed and released around the pond in an area surrounded by woods as an opportunity to remember a loved one or special person. Attendees can also choose to take butterflies to a special place of their choosing, including their home or a cemetery.

This event is open to everyone, regardless of whether you've had a loved one in our care.
