Readers share a few of their hopes and dreams

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents have much to hope for during the COVID pandemic

Last month, The News – in partnership with West Coast Auto Group – initiated the Hope For… poster campaign.

Residents were encourage to take the page out of the newspaper, write in what they’re hoping or wishing for during the COVID pandemic, and hang that poster in their window.

INITIAL KICKOFF: MAPLE RIDGE AND PITT MEADOWS PLEASE SHARE – Hope for…

They were also encourage to send in photos of themselves and their posters.

Several more submissions continue to come in, and we want to share these words of inspiration and “hope” with the readers.

PAST COVERAGE: Sharing hope for the community

For instance, one reader, Lynell Adams – dubbed Maple Ridge’s Joy Splasher – sent in a few pictures depicting her hope. “We should not let our fears hold us back from pursing our hopes…” she said, ponting to another sign on the wall at her work in a local care home.
