The Eleventh Annual Monarch Butterfly Release “Wings of Hope” In Memory of 9-11 sponsored by Gay & Ciha Funeral and Cremation Service
“Wings of Hope”, a monarch tag and release program, combines service and remembrance to 9/11. For the eleventh year, Gay & Ciha Funeral and Cremation Service of Iowa City is working with elementary students in a positive way to recognize a very tragic day in America’s history.
In recognition of 9/11, the Iowa City funeral home joins the third graders at Lucas Elementary for a service learning program with monarch butterflies.
‘Wings of Hope’ offers a way for the children to provide scientific information for the University of Kansas’ research of the migratory travels of monarch butterflies. The monarch program is led by Kathleen Zimmers of Butterfliz of Iowa, Des Moines.
The monarch release for Robert Lucas elementary will be held at the funeral home on Wednesday, September 11 at 12 noon.
At the conclusion of the service project, children will voice their wishes and hopes for a better world as the butterflies are released into the wild.
The public is invited to attend. Children of all ages, from those who arrive in a stroller to those who appreciate the assistance of a cane, are welcome to share in the simple beauty of the innocence of young people sharing with the world their hopes for a better tomorrow.
