Remembering those we’ve lost to COVID-19, honoring our health care heros and celebrating the promise of the vaccine.
On March 16, 2020, the first case of COVID-19 was diagnosed in our area. The world was gripped by uncertainty about the new and mysterious virus. In the 12 months since, that uncertainty has given way to fear, loss and, most recently, hope brought about by a lifesaving vaccine.
“Lights to Remember, Hope for Tomorrow” is a luminary ceremony to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives to the virus, offer thanks for those who have recovered, honor the region’s health care heroes and celebrate the promise of the COVID-19 vaccine.
More than 700 luminaries – each representing a life lost to COVID-19 in the area will be displayed today, March 16th, to mark the anniversary.
We pray for those lost and recovering and thank our heros!
