Valley Hospice Plans Memorial Butterfly Releases

Valley Hospice will host two uplifting evenings dedicated to remembering and celebrating the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.

The 17th Annual Valley Hospice Memorial Butterfly Releases will be held on Tuesday, September 21, at the Oglebay Park Anne Kuchinka Amphitheater, Wheeling and Wednesday, September 22, at the Fort Steuben Park Berkman Amphitheater, Steubenville. Both releases will begin at 6:00 p.m.

“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 live butterflies is a therapeutic experience that can provide comfort to those suffering from loss.”

This event is open to anyone in the community who has lost a loved one. Butterflies are $7 each. There is no rain date for these events. If rain prohibits the program, butterflies can be picked up drive-through style at the event location. For further information or to order butterflies, contact Valley Hospice at 877.HOSPICE or visit
