Feel free to stop and play. #160
As much as people may look down their noses at Emporia…calling it a small town (if they are from a bigger city) or wanting to get out of here (if they are most of my high school students) there is something so perfect about living in Emporia. We do things a little differently here…we care about people, we embrace visitors and we celebrate all of the activities held here…and celebrate them well.
Tomorrow the Symphony in the Flint Hills is taking place in Lyon County for the first time in its 7 year history. We usually celebrate the symphony even when it’s not in Lyon County, but this year, they’ve added some new activities to the mix and one of those activities is the subject of my post today.
A few weeks ago they placed some old pianos downtown that had been donated by different people or organizations and then asked for volunteers to paint/decorate the pianos. Once they were finished, the pianos were left for downtown visitors to stop and play. What resulted is some amazing art, and some amazing entertainment.
Emporia does things right!
