VNH staff, and the community to come together to honor lost loved ones. Following a short program of readings and beautiful music, everyone releases their butterflies. Some fly away immediately, while others land on shoulders and fingertips wanting to stay for a while. There is something captivating and magical about watching the delicate winged creatures as they launch and softly dance away in the sky.
“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was very special,” said Barbara G. about last year’s Wings of Hope. “It was well timed, and the speakers were quite informative. We particularly liked the children’s choir. Ending with the Monarchs was over the top – extraordinary – we rarely see the beautiful creatures, and felt particularly blessed to be able to see them so close at hand – just terrific!! Although we live in the Lakes Region, we will attempt to get there yearly now.”
This year’s event will feature inspirational reflections from VNH employees and musical performances from the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children Select Choir and Scottish Highland Bagpiper Lezlie Webster.
