Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home to Host Annual Butterfly Release July 26th

For centuries, butterflies have been symbolic of transformation and resurrection. In modern times, they also represent change, hope and new beginnings. Some believe that butterfly sightings after a loved one passes is a sign that the deceased is okay and in a better place.

Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home is hosting a Butterfly Release on Friday, July 26, 2024, from 6:00 – 7:00 PM in the Serenity Garden at Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home, which is located at 757 Johnsonburg Road, in St. Marys, Pa. The program begins at 6:00 PM followed by the butterfly release at 6:30 PM and refreshments at 6:45 PM.

Butterflies are set to soar at this hope-filled event that provides families an opportunity to celebrate their loved ones as they navigate through the grief process. The program will include inspirational music, reflection, prayer and the butterfly release in celebration of lives well lived. The event will be held rain or shine; however, in the event of inclement weather, the butterflies will be released when conditions are safe for acclimation to their new surroundings.

The cost is $20.00 for each butterfly. All butterflies must be ordered by Sunday, July 21, 2024. To purchase butterflies and RSVP for the event, send a check payable to: Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home, Attn: Mary Lou, 757 Johnsonburg Road, Suite 200, St. Marys, PA 15857-3497.
