Grace Kids of Grace Community Church released 42 beautiful painted lady butterflies on the lawn after services, recently. Everyone enjoyed a BBQ provided by Eagle Scout Candidate, Ty Pavlovian and fun butterfly crafts and activities.

As of the release, over 100 butterflies were still in the chrysalis stage of development. The cooler weather this year extended the usual 7-10 days as a chrysalis to 12-16 days.
