Look what you did

by Melanie Jongsma, Publisher

LANSING, Ill. (November 2, 2021) – The Lansing Journal published 108 articles in October. Those articles reached all over the world and were viewed 77,236 times. Closer to home, articles about our community were read by people in Chicago, Cal City, South Holland, Flossmoor, and other Illinois communities, as well as by our neighbors in Munster, Highland, Schererville, Cedar Lake, and elsewhere in Indiana.

That’s a lot of news read by a lot of people.

That’s what you did this month.

This kind of local-but-far-reaching coverage is possible because so many of you partner with us to keep this newspaper going. Your gifts pay our reporters, keep our website live, and send our Daily News email to thousands of subscribers.

Thank you for what you did this month.

You are a small but faithful army of generous people who see the need, believe in the potential, and invest in making a difference.

Thank you, October supporters
