COVID-19 Memorial Pinwheel Garden

Join Us on June 2 at 4:00 p.m. as We Remember Loved Ones Lost to COVID-19
Posted on 05/28/2021

The community is invited to join the Douglas County School System to honor loved ones lost to COVID-19 during a Memorial Pinwheel Ceremony Wednesday, June 2, at 4:00 p.m.  During the ceremony, employees and community members will place a pinwheel in the new Central Office’s front lawn. 

Each of the pinwheels symbolizes a loved one who passed away due to COVID-19. The names were submitted by Douglas County School System employees and community members. The bright yellow pinwheels serve as a visual reminder that the person is loved and missed every day by the community. 

Employees and community members are invited to join in this time of reflection. The event will feature remarks from Douglas County School System Superintendent Trent North and Board of Education Chair Tracy Rookard. Kevin McKoy of First Baptist Church of Lithia Springs, Benjamin Lang of Cornerstone Baptist Church and Billy Godwin of Ephesus Baptist Church will deliver remarks and moments of personal reflection.  

“The COVID-19 pandemic changed every aspect of our lives. It changed the way we live, the way we work and the way we learn,” Superintendent Trent North says. “But many members of Team Douglas and the community experienced a profound loss during the pandemic. Many are still grieving the loss of a loved one. We stand in solidarity with our Douglas County family. We will support them and honor the memory of their loved ones through this community ceremony.”

The Memorial Pinwheel Ceremony and Garden will be held at the Douglas County School System’s new Central Office at 11490 Veterans Memorial Highway Douglasville, GA 30134 on Wednesday, June 2 at 4pm

Guests will gather outside around the main DCSS sign at the corner of Veterans Memorial Highway and North Burnt Hickory Road. Parking is available in the visitor parking lot on Veterans Memorial or in the parking deck on North Burnt Hickory.
