Your Mission for this weekend,

should you choose to accept it:

The Riparian Woman’s Club is asking all residents and businesses in the City of Emporia and Greensville County to place a sign or picture of one of these three symbols on your door or window. The symbols are a Rainbow, Butterfly, or a Candle. These symbols all represent "hope."

We are asking the public to do this in support of our frontline workers and those families who have been affected by the coronavirus. We also wish to do this in support of each other.

So many people are suffering in so many different ways during this time of uncertainty and isolation. Hopefully, seeing these symbols will bring a smile to someone’s face. If so, then we have served our purpose well.

Email photos of your Symbols of Hope so that they may be shared with out of town readers who may need a pick-me-up from home...send them to news@emporianews.com.

We're all in this together...

Send news tips, story ideas and advertising questions to news@emporianews.com.
