Governor Pete Ricketts and First Lady Susanne Shore are asking all Nebraskans to take part this Friday-Sunday in a Weekend of Remembrance and Honor for those who’ve died in the coronavirus pandemic.
Gov. Ricketts will also issue an official proclamation recognizing Sunday as a Statewide Day of Prayer.
A virtual memorial wall has been created at www.neimpact.org to pay homage to loved ones lost due to the pandemic. The public is invited to submit photos, stories, poems, and other tributes memorializing loved ones lost.
The Governor and First Lady are encouraging Nebraskans to engage in acts of honor throughout the weekend, which may include volunteering or making charitable donations to organizations working to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
You can visit www.nevolunteers.org to connect with volunteer opportunities or to donate to a variety of Nebraska non-profits.
