10th Annual Butterfly Release VIRTUAL

In light of recent events and in an attempt to keep our community safe yet honor the memory of our loved ones, this year, for the 10th Annual Butterfly Release, the community were not present. Instead, we have recorded the ceremony privately to host a Watch Party here on our website and Facebook page.

Hosted by the Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Foundation, the celebration includes a recitation of names and the release of Painted Lady Butterflies.
