REDDING, Calif. – Community members in Redding will be honoring those who have passed due to COVID-19.
Painted memorial rocks will soon be put on display at the Sculpture Garden at City Hall.
Those who want to participate can paint a rock and deliver it to the Parks and Recreation Department at Redding City Hall starting May 17 through May 24. People who have questions about the project can email the organizer, Maddie Walker at COVID19reddingmemorial@gmail.com.
The idea was started by a community member and they wanted to offer the space for it.
“Maddie came to us asking some different park areas and I suggested the Sculpture Park, I thought this would be a great beautiful area for people to walk and reflect and remember those we have lost through this pandemic,” “Administrative Assistant Parks and Recreation, Brook New said.
Action News Now spoke with Walker who said she wanted to start the project to give the community an opportunity to grieve together.
The rocks will be on display from May 28 to June 25.
