Family and friends think of loved ones
covid service
Agape Worship Center pastor Donald Chavers Jr. and sign language interpreter Robin Fowler both express emotion as Chavers sings a hymn from behind plexiglass screens during a memorial service honoring Bulloch County residents who lost their lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic at the Bulloch County Courthouse on Sunday, April 11. Hosted by the Statesboro Ministerial Association, Statesboro City Council, and Bulloch County Board of Commissioners, the service featured comments by Statesboro Mayor Jonathan McCollar, Bulloch County Board of Commissioners Chairman Roy Thompson, and leaders of several local faith traditions.
Many of the 100 or so people who attended the COVID-19 community memorial service Sunday afternoon on the Bulloch County Courthouse square were remembering a specific family member or friend who died of the illness during the past 12 months.
