As a beautiful way to honor those we have lost in the community, Pathways Hospice will be hosting a summer memorial service and butterfly release at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 16.

This uplifting event is free and open to the public, and will include a reception with refreshments, poem reading, music therapy and a dance performance. A butterfly release will conclude the morning's ceremony – celebrating life and the healing power of nature, while bringing peace and serenity to those who are grieving. Butterflies can be purchased for $20. Pathways is located at 305 Carpenter Road in Fort Collins.
