Butterfly Release to be Held in June

April 19, 2016

Penn Highlands DuBois Hospice Program will hold its Second Annual Butterfly Release on Saturday, June 4th at 2 p.m. in the DuBois City Park Edward V. Cherry Amphitheater.

Hundreds of butterflies are released at these events.  The butterflies are sponsored to honor and remember loved ones.

When released, some butterflies flutter away immediately, while many others delight the crowd by staying to rest on hands, shoulders and nearby flowers and bushes.  The event also includes inspirational readings, beautiful music and the reading of names.

It is not necessary to sponsor a butterfly to attend this special event. All are encouraged to gather at the DuBois City Park on June 4th to join the celebration of remembrance.  Anyone requiring seating should bring a lawn chair.
