A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Heartland Hospice was held on June 24th. Butler Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Jim Henry and BCMH Family Care Clinics attended and welcomed a great asset to the community! Over 40 people were there to attend the celebration and welcome Heartland Hospice to the area. Its nice to see businesses use an “older” building instead of building a completely new building that leaves yet another good building to go to waste. Burnt Offerings BBQ and Tropical Snow were on location providing food and snow cones to the patrons. Heartland Hospice will take great care of your loved one in critical times to give you peace of mind. Thank you Heartland Hospice for choosing Butler!
