A big ‘thank you’ to Snoqualmie Valley readers and businesses | Shaw

Throughout 2022 the Snoqualmie Valley Record has brought you stories that celebrate the common bonds that connect the people, businesses, nonprofits and community groups of North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City and Carnation. In this past year’s print and digital pages, we hope you’ve been informed, enlightened, inspired, entertained or educated by coverage of the things that make our Valley unique and the people that help keep the Valley ticking.

As we tell the story of the Valley, the Valley Record continues to provide accurate, fact-based reporting that offers public scrutiny and oversight. The Valley Record’s local coverage by professional, experienced reporters and editors also need to be supported to ensure that we can provide valuable and unbiased journalism. And readers up and down the Valley have stepped up to continue the Record’s mission by investing in our print and digital content. We appreciate and thank each and every one of our subscribers. Your support helps keep us going!

I’d also like to give a shout out and thank our advertisers. Throughout the roller coaster ride that was 2022, they continued to brand their businesses and promote their products, services and events. This too provides great support that continues our journalistic mission:

I’d also like to offer my gratitude to the many Valley families from near and far that celebrated the lives and marked the passing of their departed loved ones in our obituary pages. These groups, businesses and nonprofits ran print or digital display ads, branded content online stories or targeted email blasts with us in 2022. We certainly appreciate their business and their trust and look forward to serving them in 2023.

Each and every one of our readers and these local businesses, nonprofits and groups have my personal thanks for supporting the Valley Record and www.valleyrecord.com or by subscribing at www.valleyrecord.com/subscribe.
