The sixth annual St. Bernards Advocates Butterfly Release is scheduled for 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 6 in the east parking lot at the St. Bernards Imaging Center, 1144 East Matthews Avenue. Activities will be held near the water features at the side of the Flo & Phil Jones Hospice House.
This event is designed as a day of celebration and remembrance. Activities will include music, arts and crafts for children and a youth art contest. Art entries will be displayed on the day of the event, and winners in each age division will have works on display at the Hospice House during the month of November, National Hospice Awareness Month.
Butterflies may be purchased by calling the St. Bernards Foundation at 870-207-2500 – or going by the Foundation office at 400 East Street. They also may be purchased by logging on to the Foundation web site, www.stbernardsfoundation.org. Butterflies will cost $135 for 10 or $15 each. (Those purchased after Oct. 2 will not be listed in the program.)
The butterfly release is sponsored by the St. Bernards Advocates, with proceeds benefiting the Flo and Phil Jones Hospice House.
