Detroit to Hold Aug. 31 Memorial Day for COVID-19 Victims

DETROIT — The city of Detroit announced a memorial day to honor more than 1,400 residents who died from COVID-19 and invited families to share photos that will be enlarged and displayed at a state park.

The city’s director of arts and culture says the photos will be staked along the route of a memorial drive scheduled for Aug. 31.

“This is a very special thing for those of us who have lost people,” Riley said Wednesday. “We want to make sure we take a chance to take one last look at them.”

She says every person, church and community group in southeastern Michigan will be invited to ring bells for 15 minutes at 8:45 a.m.
