We are happy to announce that we are able to hold a Corona Virus friendly version of our Butterfly Garden Social on Saturday, September 19th, 11:00-2:00.  We will not be able to have a catered meal this year, but families are welcome to bring a picnic, blanket, and chairs.  We respectfully ask that everyone observe social distancing, bring masks and if you bring a picnic, that you set up away from the garden and you may stay as long as you want. This is a carry in/carry out event.

Each family will be assigned a 20 minute time during their hour to release their butterflies, and your 20 minute time frame will be emailed to you. Please check in order of preference your Hour time frame. We ask you to rank all 3 choices, as we have to limit the amount of people in each time slot and they will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. You will be able to spend time at the garden and the brick walkway at that time. We ask for your patience as we try to make this event work for everyone.

In order to ensure that we have enough butterflies, please RSVP by August 23rd, 2020. Payment can be made online here. Or if you prefer to mail your form make checks payable to TCF Manchester and mail to Anne Silanskas 14 Eldorado Circle Nashua, NH 03062.

Finally we are asking members to do a Virtual or Real Walk Fundraiser for our Chapter. This walk can occur anytime but we are suggesting the dates of Sept 12-19th. The National Office handles the site to do this fundraiser, we receive all monies meant for our chapter and we are currently waiting for them to launch the site. When it is available we will share that info.

I cannot attend this event but would like to make a donation.

Please share the following with your guests:

  • Smoking is only permitted in the parking lot area and not in the garden area
  • We ask you to refrain from bringing pets

We thank you for your support for this event and for supporting our chapter and its mission to help others who need our support too.
