Valley Hospice Sets Butterfly Releases

Valley Hospice will hold two events dedicated to remembering and celebrating the lives of loved ones who have died.

The 14th annual Valley Hospice memorial butterfly releases will be held at Steubenville Country Club on Aug. 7 and at Wheeling Park’s White Palace on Aug. 9. Both releases will begin at 6 p.m.

The events are open to anyone in the community who has lost a loved one. Butterflies to be purchased must be ordered by Wednesday. As an added feature, attendees will have the opportunity to submit their loved one’s name and/or photograph to be included in the memorial slideshow.

“Our butterfly memorials provide a unique opportunity to cherish memories of our loved ones as we combine music and thoughtful recitations,” said Cynthia Bougher, Valley Hospice CEO. “The release of the butterflies is a therapeutic experience that can provide comfort to those suffering from loss.”
