During these times of change and division, the need to highlight what brings our community together is even stronger. Likewise, the need for robust, independent and local journalism has never been greater.
Every day, the staff at the Snoqualmie Valley Record strive to bring you stories that celebrate our common bonds and that connect the people, businesses, nonprofits and community groups of North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City and beyond… Stories that enlighten, inspire, educate and entertain.
We will also continue to provide accurate, fact-based reporting that offers public scrutiny and oversight. But the trained, professional and experienced reporters and editors that cover our Valley also require a community investment.
Whether it is from our valued digital and print advertising partners or from our loyal reader subscribers, our journalism efforts need to be supported to ensure that we can continue to cover the communities of the Valley with valuable, unbiased and honest reporting.
Since 1913, readers of the Snoqualmie Valley Record have valued our mission, and have shared in the partnership of that mission by investing in The Record with their neighbors up and down the Valley. Then and now, it is our readers and advertisers’ financial support that has protected our independence, which in today’s world, has never been so critical.
I hope that you value our role in being a part of what brings our Valley together, and we gratefully invite you to consider supporting the Snoqualmie Valley Record in our 108-year mission by becoming a digital or home delivery print subscriber by visiting www.valleyrecord.com/svr2021/ or www.valleyrecord.com/subscribe.
And, if you have a hot news tip or a great story idea, please connect with me or our award-winning reporters and editor. We’d love to hear from you!
You have my personal thanks for reading and supporting the Valley Record and www.valleyrecord.com and wish you and your families the very best during these still challenging times.
Please stay safe and protect your neighbors and community by masking up and getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
