A touching tribute celebrating the life and memory of loved ones goes tomorrow (Saturday) at the North Bay waterfront.

Near North Palliative Care Network Executive Director Monica Do Coutto Monni says their 10th annual Butterfly Release goes from from 11 am to 1 pm at the Kiwanis Bandshell.

“As the name says it’s a healing event, where people can release part of the grief in their heart, none of us are free from loss,” she says.

There will be music, activities for the kids and the live butterfly release just after noon.

Another butterfly release is happening at Barclay House afterwards, too.

“We are a local visiting hospice, we go where our clients are and it’s an honour and privilege to take the butterflies to Barclay House for the first time,” she says.

The waterfront event supports the Near North Palliative Care Network.
