Sharing their Hope For… message, a pair of Walnut Grove sisters said they’re missing their classmates

As British Columbians begin preparing to resume a more normal – although still limited – life after the long weekend, not everyone will be returning to work or school. At least not yet.

Last month, the Langley Advance Times kicked off the Hope For… campaign, asking local residents to fill in a poster in the paper listing what they hope for most during this pandemic.

They were encourage to decorate the poster as they wished, including their message, grab a picture, then hang the poster in their window at home or at work.

Dozens participated, and much like the hearts in the window campaign, these signs continue to lift the spirits of those who walk or drive by and see them.

Thank you to all who participated, and may you all stay safe and well as B.C. moves to restart the province.
