Butterfly Release Celebration July 21st - Butterflies Still Available for Dedications
Auburn, Maine 7/6/12 - There are still plenty of butterflies available for dedications for the July 21st Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's annual Butterfly Release Celebration. The event is a unique opportunity to remember and honor loved ones by dedicating a butterfly. Guests will share memories, enjoy music and light refreshments. The highlight of the celebration will be the mass release of Monarch butterflies.
"A little over a year ago we lost an amazing husband, father and friend," states Traci Leavitt. "The release of the butterflies signifies a way for our family to celebrate the life that we lost. This year as we release a butterfly in remembrance of my father, Paul, we heal a little bit more as a family."
All community members are welcome to dedicate a butterfly. No prior affiliation with hospice is needed. Your dedication will include the release of a Monarch Butterfly and the names of those being honored will be read at the event. There will also be a raffle table as well as kids' crafts the day of the event.
Butterfly dedications are $25 per Monarch and can be made online. Paper dedication forms are available at the Hospice House on Stetson Road in Auburn, Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's Lewiston Office on Strawberry Avenue, Bangor Savings Bank locations and Bedard Pharmacy and Medical Supply on Minot Avenue in Auburn. Proceeds from the Butterfly Release Celebration benefit patient care and family support services at Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's Hospice House.
