Annual St. Michael's butterfly release supports kitchen renovation project

More than 200 butterflies were released as a symbol of life and new beginnings during the annual St. Michael’s Butterfly Release held on Sunday, June 10.

Mary Anne Glentz and great-grandchildrenAmber Rusert, Clinical Care Coordinator and LPN at St. Michael’s, welcomed and thanked everyone for attending. She shared about how all gifts donated to the Butterfly Release are supporting the St. Michael’s kitchen update project.

Following the welcome, everyone was able to release their butterflies.

“The butterflies fly off right away but they often stay in the area landing on the flowers we have planted,” explained Tiffany Olson, Administrator at St. Michael’s.
