More of you made it happen

An updated list of November supporters

by Melanie Jongsma, Managing Editor

print thank-youLANSING, Ill. (December 2, 2020) – On Thanksgiving I posted a thank-you to all the advertisers and individuals who contributed financially so that The Lansing Journal could produce a print issue in December. But there were a few more people who made donations between Thanksgiving and November 30, and I want to make sure they are publicly thanked as well. An updated list is shared below.

Now that the issue is printed and delivered, I am even more grateful to all of you who made it happen. It’s been fun to read comments and emails and texts from people as they received the issue on their front porches. Thank you for those.

Thank you, November supporters
