Steps of Hope: A Tribute Walk & Butterfly Release

The bereavement program thanks all those who attended our annual Steps of Hope Tribute Walk and Butterfly release on Sunday, June 2. This year’s event brought over 450 people to Cromwell Valley Park for an afternoon of healing. We honored loved ones who have died by taking a reflective walk and then releasing newly transformed butterflies into the world. It was a life affirming event and we are grateful for our guests, staff and volunteers who made this another memorable afternoon.
