The Rhode Island Remembers: COVID -19 Memorial was a successful statewide memorial that took place June 25-July 2, 2022 on the Rhode Island state house lawn with almost 4,00 flags honoring each Rhode Islander who died from COVID-19.
Our memorial was the only statewide COVID -19 Memorial.to take place in the nation. We have modeled it after the national memorial that took place in the fall of 2021.[https://www.inamericaflags.org/
We further kicked it up a notch by distributing the flags that were at the statehouse to each RI municipality for local memorials to honor their own COVID -19 deaths at a site of their choice to make it truly a statewide community based event. [see attached flyer].
Scituate lost 13 good people to COVID-19. Thus we have 13 flags honoring them at the gazebo in North Scituate.
Scituate residents with our Girl Scouts were involved with all things “flags” from planning, to installing, taking them down and distributing to RI cities and towns for localized memorials. We also had clergy from Scituate's Shepherd of the Valley UMC on site for grief counseling and more.
Scituate made Rhode Island a better place.
