Mayor Paul Foster invites Redlands residents to join the City of Redlands and a host of local churches in a “Moment at 7,” honoring health care workers, first responders, grocery store employees and other helpers, beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 12, and continuing each Sunday at 7 p.m. through the end of May.

Partnering with the Redlands Area Interfaith Council and the Redlands Service Club Council, the City of Redlands encourages residents to take a moment at 7 p.m. each Sunday through the end of May to go outside and ring bells, sound gongs, play instruments, bang on pots and pans or give a cheer for those caring for the people of our community, the nation and the world during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Local churches will be ringing their bells for one minute and Police and Firefighters will flash their lights and sound their sirens in appreciation.
