Hospice Chautauqua County will hold a Service of Remembrance and Memorial Butterfly Release on Sunday at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, located at 35 W. Fairmount Ave. in Lakewood. This special event begins with a memorial service at 1 p.m. followed by a butterfly release ceremony and light refreshments. Those who attend will join many others to release the beautiful butterflies that have been reserved with the intention to never forget those they have personally lost.
All of the community is welcome to release a butterfly. Those who would like to release a butterfly in honor or memory of a loved one can make a donation online of $20 to Hospice Chautauqua County at www.hospicechautco.org or by calling 338-0033.
The Walter family honors Mary Lou Walter at last year’s event.
