Thank You + Photos from 2023 Butterfly Release!

Thank you to all who supported this year’s Butterfly Release! Saturday was a beautiful day of remembrance and celebration for the community with a memorial ceremony, arts and crafts, and a special visit from our therapy pet Bunny.

We shared a couple fun photos below. Follow us on Facebook to view the full photo and video gallery.

A special thank you to our Butterfly Benefactors; Honorary Junior Chair, Belle Yeagle; Christie Cookies and Ellen Einstein for donating sweet treats; Oye Coffee and Friends’ Treat Truck for attending; and Green Door Gourmet for donating the space to make this possible.
