(O’FALLON, IL) – After previously cancelling the Memorial Butterfly Release event due to bad weather, HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and HSHS Hospice Southern Illinois have set a new date for the event to take place. Community members are invited to join HSHS colleagues for the butterfly release in memory of loved ones on June 21 at 4:30 p.m. at the hospital, located at 1 St. Elizabeth’s Blvd. in O’Fallon.  Guests are also invited to attend a short reception following the release. Participants will gather at the St. Elizabeth’s statue and rose garden near the “Outpatient” entrance sign on the building. 
 
“The butterfly represents the transformation of the spirit as our loved ones transition from this life,” said Ashley Dillingham, Outreach Representative for HSHS Hospice Southern Illinois. “We look forward to sharing in this special time with our community.”
 
Butterflies were previously pre-ordered but there are more available for $25 each. If you are interested in reserving a butterfly or have any questions regarding the Memorial Butterfly Release, please contact Ashley Dillingham, Outreach Representative with HSHS Home Care & Hospice Southern Illinois, at 217-994-3397 or Ashley.Dillingham@hshs.org.
