Ontario-Yates Hospice Hosts Memorial Butterfly Release

Keuka Park, NY— On Sunday, September 10, 2017, Ontario-Yates Hospice, a program of UR Medicine Home Care, will be celebrating life and paying tribute to loved ones who have passed away at our annual memorial butterfly release. The release will take place at 2:00 PM at Keuka College’s Norton Chapel and lawn.

Please join the Honorary event chair Corinne Stork and Master of Ceremonies Michael Healy in sending magnificent butterflies skyward in a symbolic gesture of the cycle of life, birth, transition, healing and renewal. As our butterflies soar away, so too will our well wishes and prayers.  This unique program will include inspirational readings, live music and the reading of names of loved ones being remembered.

Each year a guest artist is commissioned to create the artwork used to promote the event and keepsake.  This year Sarah Berg painted a beautiful butterfly using the blues and yellows tied to our agencies colors.
