SIOUX CENTER—The Sioux County Democrats are hosting an event to remember those who have suffered and/or died from COVID-19 at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19, on the west side of the Sioux Center Public Library, where each person will be given a paper bag.

Bring a light source — such as a cellphone, flashlight or electric candle — that you can put inside the bag.

The goal is to stretch for several blocks down the east side of Highway 75.

Participants will light up the strip at 5:45 p.m.

Participants may hold a photo or a sign with the name of a loved one.

Wear layers and some may want to bring a chair.

Wear a mask when picking up a bag, then social distance for safety.

Another way to participate is to ride by and honk support.
