ALBION — The Orleans County Courthouse will be illumined in red, white and blue for a week in September, in memory of those who have died from Covid-19.

The display at the courthouse also honors those who have served on the front lines of the pandemic and recognizes a “resilient community,” according to resolution approved on Wednesday by the County Legislature.

The county Department of Public Works is working with Takeform in Medina on the display, which will likely happen the week of Sept. 6-12.

“Through these trying times the people of Orleans County have dealt with the death of loved ones, loss of business, caring for loved ones, additional mental stress and our people have exhibited their resiliency,” county legislators stated.

The patriotic display also is expected to be ready during the Labor Day holiday and for the memorial observance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The county is planning a ceremony on the courthouse lawn at 6 p.m. on Sept. 11.
