Limited edition: the 2022 Life in Lansing calendar

A monthly calendar for monthly supporters
(only 50 available, only during September)

LANSING, Ill. (August 31, 2021) – The 2022 Life in Lansing Calendar is all about Lansing — Lansing photos, Lansing event dates, Lansing school district information, acknowledgements of Lansing history, and links to significant Lansing articles The Lansing Journal has published over the years. It’s a custom calendar, printed on thick pages and bound with a metal spiral. Each page is 12×12″, and the date squares are a spacious 1.5×1.75″.

We created it as a celebration of launching into our fifth year of providing news to our community.

We also created it as a way to raise funds — so we can continue providing news to our community.

Month by month

We’re printing only 50 of these beautiful calendars, and we will give them to the first 50 people who sign up as monthly supporters of The Lansing Journal. Adding new monthly supporters will help create the financial foundation we need in order to continue reporting, publishing, and delivering local news every day.

All our monthly givers (not just the new ones) have the special satisfaction of knowing that they are essential workers in our hometown news scene. Without their investment, The Lansing Journal ceases to exist.

And now, this new Life in Lansing calendar will serve as an additional reminder. Month by month, supporters will see bright, colorful photos of events and people unique to Lansing — events covered by Lansing’s only newspaper.

Taking a risk

We wish we could print more of these beautiful calendars. We wish we could give them to everyone in Lansing. But the cost is a significant investment for us, so we need to ensure it achieves a significant return. We’re taking a risk, hoping our community will respond.

Will you be one of the 50?

UPDATE: Our one-and-only calendar promotion has ended but our need for support is ongoing. Will you give today?


Looking back, looking ahead

Thank you for the encouragement and support you have provided throughout our history. Since launching in 2017, The Lansing Journal has faced significant changes in our community and our world, and our readers have kept us going through it all. We look forward to continuing to adapt and grow to serve you well, in 2022 and beyond.
