2021 Butterfly Release

So that we can remember our loved ones while respecting our own health, we are making the following changes to the Butterfly Release.

Drive through one of three pick-up stations (see below) to pick up your butterfly.

HCP will offer three pick-up stations on Sunday, July 18 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. You are invited to pick up your Butterfly Release Kit, that includes literature from our bereavement department, live butterflies, the Butterfly Release Tribute Book and a few gifts for any children who will be joining you!

Locations for the pick-up stations are below.

Harrisburg| Tree of Life Church, 1492 Linglestown Road

Carlisle | Carlisle Baptist Church, 701 Walnut Bottom Road

Pottsville | Schuylkill County Council for the Arts, 1440 Mahantongo Street

2021 Memorial Program

It’s important to take time to remember your loved ones. This year we offer three options for you to participate in a Butterfly Release memorial program.

1. Private Program - Please see your Butterfly Release tribute book for suggestions on how to plan your own Butterfly Release memorial program. This might be in your living room, or out in your garden.

2. View the Program Video - On July 18 at 3:00 p.m. the Butterfly Release program video will be available. You can view the video on our Facebook page or visit our website. The video includes messages from an HCP bereavement care coordinator and HCP chaplain.

3. Watch with Family at Another Time - The program will remain on our website for you to share with friends and family or watch at a time that is more convenient for you.

You are invited to send a photo of your loved one to kmyers@hospiceofcentralpa.org before June 15th to be included in the Butterfly Release program video.

Please contact Kelly Myers at kmyers@hospiceofcentralpa.org or 717-943-1052 with your questions.
