This year, National Grief & Bereavement Day is observed on Tuesday, November 15, followed by National Children’s Grief Awareness Day on November 17. These two days provide an opportunity to honour and remember the people we have loved and lost, and also serve as a reminder to acknowledge those who are mourning.
As a way to commemorate these special days, Bethell Hospice is offering a butterfly workshop in partnership with Caledon Public Library. Consider dropping by one of three Caledon Public Library branches (dates and times listed below), to create a remembrance paper butterfly that will be added to a special art exhibit in Inglewood, ON. Butterflies represent hope and symbolize transformation, and are used around the world to raise awareness about grief and bereavement.
All are welcome to attend and the workshops are free! Children are encouraged to participate as well. Materials will be provided and members of the Bethell Hospice team will be on-hand to assist.
Fri Oct 21 1-4pm – Albion-Bolton Branch
Sat Oct 22 10am-1pm – Southfields Village Branch
Thurs Oct 27 5-8pm – Inglewood Branch
A kaleidoscope of these personalized paper butterflies will descend upon the community in a beautiful art exhibit displayed at Coywolf Coffee in Inglewood. Drop by the local coffee shop from November 12 – 21 to view the collection of butterflies created by community participants.
