We used to do a dove release for The Compassionate Friends Sarasota Chapter every year. Since our friend Vivian resigned or retired in 2013, they haven't wanted a dove release. Sad. I know the parents loved it.
I am adding a couple years of releases to this web page.

First Baptist Church of Port Charlotte wanted to celebrate being mortgage free. The birds were a perfect accompanimate to the burning of the document!

I had the honor and privilege of doing a photo shoot with a very talented singer/songwriter, Leah Soderblom. Billy Elkins did the photography and inlayed photos of my birds.

Bay Breeze Health and Rehabilitation Center, Venice, Fl had an unusal event. Several of their residents chose to renew their wedding vows. It was a very enriching experience.

Tidewell Hospice of Manatee County has an annual "Gift Of Life" program, which my birds have performed at every year since 2008. They took great and loving care of my son-in-law during his final stage of esophageal cancer.
In 2015 Tidewell Happenings Media attended that year's event and published a video and an article on their website. Please click on images below to view.
