“Thank you for doing the work you and everyone at Lansing Journal do. You provide a very valuable service for the community. The daily Journal report is the first thing I check every morning.”

“Thank you for highlighting some of the wonderful things District 215 is doing. My phone and email is blowing up this morning from friends and family after seeing the video. Kudos to The Lansing Journal!”

“One of the many things I love about Lansing is the fact that you actually, personally reached out to me in response to my comments. That doesn’t happen too often anymore anywhere else. Thank you again for all that you do to keep our town so connected.”

“I quit my subscription to The Times a few months ago,” one Lansing resident told us. “The only reason we subscribed was to not miss death notices, but now we can get this on the internet very easily. The Lansing Journal is doing a great service to the Lansing community!”
