The Interfaith Collective and Farmville Cares will host a virtual memorial service for those who have died from the coronavirus Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 5:30 p.m. The service may be accessed online on Facebook by searching Southside Remembrance Vigils.

Faith leaders are scheduled to share online messages to honor those who have died while reflecting on the challenges faced during 2020.

The group is also asking that area government buildings, businesses, residences and schools be illuminated by 5:15 p.m. that day on honor of those who have died.
