Location: Serenity Home
A short service will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m.
A few things to note if you are coming:
Get here early. Parking is limited. Please carpool whenever possible. DO NOT park on Route 2 as it is extremely dangerous.
We have arranged for a satellite parking location and a shuttle bus to bring you to & from the Serenity Home. The lot is located at the corner of Pines Road and 10th Street (1010 W Pines Road in GPS or Map app will get you to the parking lot). We will have volunteers there to direct you – so look for them in their yellow vests. Shuttles will begin running by 8:00am.
Seating and shade is limited. Bring a lawn chair, blanket, umbrella, etc.
In the event of heavy rain or severe weather, we will cancel the event and it will NOT be rescheduled.
A decision will be made by 7:30 a.m. on July 8th and will be posted on our Facebook page or you may call the Serenity Home at 815-732-4111 to inquire.
If cancelled, we will keep the butterflies refrigerated and make them available for pickup that morning. We will provide instructions on preparing them for release as soon as weather permits.
