(NOBLESVILLE, FEBRUARY 19, 2021)
Hamilton County, along with the cities of Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, and Westfield, will pay its respects to those who have lost their lives this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic at a vigil on Saturday, March 13th.
Dubbed a “Night of Reflection,” city and county officials will meet on the steps of the Old Courthouse in downtown Noblesville to pay their respects for and light a luminaria in honor of every Hamilton County resident who has passed away from the virus since its arrival last year. That total now stands at 375.
Fire, police, and EMS vehicles from around the county will also line the square downtown for a ceremonial lighting of the lights to honor all the healthcare professionals and first responders who have fought a valiant fight on the frontlines of the virus.
The ceremony can be viewed live on Hamilton County Television. The public is strongly discouraged from attending. Instead, organizers are asking residents to place candles in their windows at 7:00 p.m. that evening to show their support. Free battery-operated candles will be available for residents to pick up the week of the event. More details to come.
