One year ago on March 11, the world changed when the WHO declared COVID-19 a world pandemic. We faced many challenges and yet grew stronger together. We now invite Johnson County, Missouri, to unite in honor of frontline workers and to remember those lost to COVID-19 during the “A Light to Remember, A Hope for Tomorrow” event on Wednesday, March 10 at 7:00pm.
The ceremony is intended to serve as an opportunity for citizens across the county to participate in a moment of unity and remembrance.
BUSINESSES/CITIZENS: We encourage you to participate by turning on business lights/porch lights on the evening of the luminary remembrance event.
LUMINARY EVENT DETAILS:
7:00pm: We invite our citizens to join us in the west parking lot (WITH YOUR LIGHTS ON) at Western Missouri Medical Center.
7:15pm: Tune to 1450 KOKO for a song, a moment of silence, and a brief message to our community.
SPREAD THE LOVE: We invite you to share this moment on social media by using the #JoCoMoStrong.
We also encourage the use of cell phone flashlights or apps that will help illuminate our community on this special evening, exactly one year before our world changed.
