LANSING, Ill. (September 21, 2021) – Since we published the 2022 Life in Lansing Calendar earlier this month, I’ve had the opportunity to meet several new people who signed up to support The Lansing Journal. All of them were already subscribers, and after enjoying the daily local reporting we do, they decided to take the next step and join our family of monthly supporters. Thank you!
As people sign up, I’ve been personally delivering their calendars. My dog Scout likes long walks, so delivering calendars this month has given us a specific purpose and destination in the mornings. Usually we simply leave the calendar on the porch or attached to the doorknob along with a thank-you note. Occasionally we get to meet these valued supporters and express our thanks in person.
As of this writing: just 10 left
Right now there are 10 calendars sitting on my kitchen counter, ready for delivery. Once these 10 are gone, Scout and I will have to find different purposes and destinations for our daily walks.
Before September is over, will you become a monthly supporter of Lansing’s only newspaper? Your contributions help ensure that we can continue reporting about local businesses, local schools, local sports, local churches — the kinds of stories no one else is covering.
And when you use the form below, you’ll also receive one of the remaining copies of the 2022 Life in Lansing calendar. Who knows — maybe you’ll even catch a glimpse of Scout and me walking up your driveway to personally deliver it to you!
Note: When you successfully complete your gift transaction, you will receive an email receipt almost immediately. If you don’t receive that email, the transaction was not successfully completed. Feel free to call or text Melanie to make her aware of any technical difficulties you experience: 708-921-4938.
Supporting Life in Lansing (the calendar and the Journal)
Your monthly gift not only covers the production cost of this beautiful 2022 Life in Lansing calendar, it also ensures that The Lansing Journal can continue reporting, publishing, and delivering local news day by day, month by month. We printed only 50 of these custom calendars, and we are hoping for 50 new supporters to help keep this local newspaper going.
