CANTON -- The EJ Noble Guild and Canton-Potsdam Hospital will host a butterfly garden dedication ceremony on at 7 p.m. Aug 21 at EJ Noble Professional Building, 80 East Main St., Canton. Filled with close to 60 different varieties of perennial plants, the garden’s shape resembles a monarch butterfly.

“This garden is really our gift to the entire community,” noted garden project chair and EJ Noble Guild member Cindy Quackenbush. “We hope everyone in the community will come out to celebrate its completion – including children.”

Attendees to the garden dedication ceremony will receive complimentary butterfly garden seeds. Music will be provided by Barb Heller, and refreshments will be available. Guild members will also have order forms available for engraved butterfly tags to display in the garden.

In addition to the dedication ceremony, CPH staff will be on-site to provide tours of the newly opened pediatric and allergy suites.

Located on the main floor, the pediatrics space was designed to be a child-friendly atmosphere with bright colors, large white boards and washable markers, and toddler-sized toilets.

Located on the second floor, the allergy practice is planning a free asthma screening day on Sept. 10.

Individuals interested in signing up for a free screening should call the allergy office at 714-3170 to make an appointment.
