Butterfly Release!
Saturday, June 26th, 2-5 PM
Delco Park, Shelter #3
1700 Delco Park Drive, Kettering 45429
Our annual Butterfly Release will be on Saturday,
June 26th.

Join us for a celebratory afternoon - 

A short, family-friendly program including a release of
beautiful butterflies, followed by fellowship and ice
cream! Bring along anyone you think may enjoy it!

This year's event will be a bit different than prior as we
continue to navigate Covid19. The chapter will
provide ice cream and other goodies, all individually
wrapped. Instead of each family bringing a treat to
share this year, any donation toward expenses is
appreciated but, of course, never required.
