Butterfly Garden a symbol of loved ones remembered

Friends of Hospice will once again present their annual “Butterfly Garden of Remembrance” over Memorial Day weekend. This benefit for Hospice of the Foothills offers the community a special place to remember their loved ones.

The garden will be located on the lawn area at Hooper & Weaver Mortuary, 459 Hollow Way in Nevada City, and will be hosted by Friends of Hospice from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 24, 25, and 26.

More than 700 colorful butterflies will be installed. Community members are invited to write a special message and names of loved ones on a card that will be attached to a beautiful wrought iron butterfly mounted to a garden stake. A $15 donation is requested for each remembrance.

To receive a donation card or to find a location were cards could be picked up, call the Friends of Hospice office at 530-274-5121. Friends of Hospice is a nonprofit organization that supports Hospice of the Foothills through activities and fundraising.
