Hospice Patients To Benefit from Butterflies in the Park Event

MyMichigan Home Care will host its annual outdoor event giving community members an opportunity to remember or honor loved ones who have had a special and positive impact on their lives.

Butterflies in the Park is a time-honored tradition that has been meaningful for donors and patients alike. Held under the auspices of MyMichigan Health Foundation in parks across the region, individuals gather to reflect upon their loved ones and enjoy a beautifully symbolic, live butterfly release. The event will include a brief commemoration presentation with musical selections and will be held on Sunday, Aug. 7, at 1 p.m. at the following locations throughout the region:

Alma – Wright Park , Tracy Band Shell, 520 Park Avenue, Alma

Clare – Emerald Isle Recreation Complex, Butterfly Garden, 303 Pinecrest Street, Clare

Gladwin – Stone Cottage Gardens, 3740 Willford Road, Gladwin

Midland, Stratford Woods Park, 3922 E. Ashman, Midland

Mt. Pleasant – Woodland Hospice House, 2597 S. Meridian Road, Mt. Pleasant

In addition to paying tribute to family and friends held dear, the funds raised at the event will support those patients in need of home care and hospice services, medication and medical supplies. Each $25 donation releases a butterfly in memory or honor of your loved one.
