New community initiative calls on Dover to show solidarity in green and white

posted on: 5/1/2020; updated: 5/6/2020

Mayor Robert Carrier is encouraging the entire community to proudly display Dover’s signature colors of green and white as a reminder we’re all in this together. The initiative, “Green and White, Let’s Unite!”, is a way for the entire community to show solidarity during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“During this unprecedented public health emergency, our residents and business community are faced with new challenges every day,” Carrier said. “Despite these challenges, one thing I know for certain is Dover will beat this. Part of the fabric of our community’s nearly 400-year heritage is our resilience.”

Carrier said people can show their support for the community by displaying green and white any way they choose. He said it can be anything from a green and white ribbon wrapped around a tree or hanging from a window or door, a handmade poster, or green and white hearts in a storefront window.

“This is an easy way to show support for the entire community,” Carrier said. “We’re all in this together, whether it be your neighbor, the business community, healthcare professionals and first responders, or essential staff at our grocery stores and restaurants. I hope everyone will join me. We’re stronger together.”<a vi class="perc-more-link"></a>

City Manager J. Michael Joyal, Jr., said people will soon see some green and white at city facilities, too.

“Although most of our buildings are closed to the public temporarily, our staff continues to provide essential services and help our residents and businesses during this public health emergency,” Joyal said. “The mayor’s new initiative is a wonderful sentiment and we’ll certainly do our part to proudly display green and white wherever we can.”

Carrier asked people to get creative and share their green and white displays on social media with a hashtag of #DoverStrong.
