ERIE, PA – Mayor Joe Schember proclaims “Bells Across Pennsylvania Day,” Sunday, May 3, 2020 in collaboration with the Pennsylvania State Mayors’ Association.
According to the Pennsylvania State Mayors’ Association, “the purpose of “Bells Across Pennsylvania Day” will be threefold:
• To recognize and honor first responders, healthcare workers, and employees of grocery stores, pharmacies, public works employees, and other life-sustaining businesses who have maintained essential services while at risk of infection from COVID-19;
• To show solidarity with elected officials and residents of municipalities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all of whom are fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines together; and
• To demonstrate a collective resolve that Pennsylvanians will prevail over COVID-19 and work tirelessly to ensure that their businesses and civic life will thrive once again.”
Pennsylvanian residents, churches, and anyone with a bell is encouraged to ring bells for three minutes – one minute for each of the above purposes at 7:00 p.m., Sunday, May 3, 2020.
