Kitchener Cemeteries, in partnership with Bereaved Families of Ontario (BFO), hosts an annual Walk to Remember and Butterfly Release - an event to support the healing process for those who have lost loved ones. 

2021 Event details

Sunday Sept. 19

Out of an abundance of caution and respect for the safety of our community, staff and volunteers, Bereaved families of Ontario has decided to not host a gathering at Williamsburg Cemetery and Dedication Centre.  BFO is inviting families to release butterflies and walk in memory of your loved ones at home or at another location that has meaning for you (and falls within current municipal physical distancing restrictions).

This event will still provide families with an opportunity to honor loved ones and release butterflies in their memory while acknowledging we are all in this challenging time together.

Bereaved families of Ontario are working hard to maintain the beautiful sense of community and connectivity this event creates and look forward to sharing more information very soon.

Proceeds from the sale of the butterflies for the butterfly release and walk will allow the BFO to continue offering community grief support to families through development and enhancement of programs and services.

For more information, please contact Bereaved Families of Ontario.
