2021 Butterfly Release Will Be a Virtual Event

Cedar Community residents enjoyed the 12th annual Butterfly Release and Celebration of Life in August. The event took place in person for our residents and virtually for our friends and neighbors in the community.

All proceeds from the event benefited Cedar Community’s Partners In Caring™ annual fund campaign.
