At least 10 butterflies were released Thursday afternoon to honor the victims of domestic violence or child abuse.
Nearly 50 people watched the butterfly release at the 7th annual Monarch and Milkweed Seminar at the Woman’s Club of Rock Hill. The seminar also featured a discussion of butterflies and habitats such as milkweed.
The event is one of the first to kick off the 10-day Come-See-Me festival in Rock Hill.
