Southfield, MI – The Southfield Mayor’s Office, Planning Department, Public Arts Commission and the City Centre Advisory Board will install memorial flags as a tribute to residents who lost their lives to COVID-19 on the front lawn of the Southfield Municipal Campus, 26000 Evergreen Road.  The flag memorial will be on display from May 10-28 in addition to a candlelight vigil that will take place on May 11 at 8 p.m. which will include a reading of the names of community members who have passed.
