Community Memorial Service and Butterfly Release

An event this Sunday will help remember those close to us that we’ve recently lost. HCI Care Services and Knoxville Hospital and Clinics are hosting a public memorial service Sunday afternoon at the Bessie Spaur Butterfly Garden. The service begins at 5pm, with a butterfly release set for 5:30. Refreshments and children’s activities will begin at 4pm. HCI Care Services bereavement councilor Don Efinger says that butterflies are used because they’re a sign of hope and freedom. In case of rain, he says they’ll have the service in the hospital lobby. The event is free; Efinger asks that those who come bring lawn chairs as well.
