RDC Honoring Lives Lost to Covid March of 2020 began a year most would like to forget. As a community we have come through this storm together and can finally see what we think is the light at the end of the tunnel. But for many families a light was taken. In honor of the residents of Rockingham County that have died to date of Covid-19, a memorial has been erected by the Reidsville Downtown Corporation at the corner of Scales and Williams Street across from the Reidsville Fire Department. 83 white flags have been placed on the site in honor of each Covid death in Rockingham County. To honor your family member, please visit the site and write their name or any memorial on a flag. According to Melanie Morrison, Reidsville Downtown Corporation President,” The RDC felt this memorial would give the community an opportunity to share in the grief of so many families losses. This has been a very hard time for the entire community and losses have been felt in many ways. We have worked hard to keep our businesses downtown and our community as a whole intact. But some holes can’t be filled and we recognize that and want to honor those lives lost. We will get through this together because we are Team Reidsville.” For more information please call 336-349-1111.
