Dear Readers,

Local news at its best captures the heart and soul of the communities it covers. Forest Park Review reporting consistently tells local stories that do just that. Stories that you can’t read anywhere else: about a beloved retiring mail carrier or neighborhood school turtle; about front porch concert series, local artists or fresh food markets; stories of elementary school students’ philanthropy projects and statewide contest triumphs; of high school and senior center proms, and ground-breaking Eagle Scouts and local heroes.

You know what we’re talking about. They’re the stories that leap off the page and tug at your heartstrings and make you so glad you choose to live here. They’re the stories that inspire you to do something for our community too.

We want to inspire you to support the local journalism that keeps these stories of your hometown available. So do your neighbors. Generous local donors have offered a $7000 matching fund, to match your gift by June 30 dollar for dollar.

We need your financial support to keep this local news coming. Small or large, every gift helps.

With gratitude,
Dan Haley and the Forest Park Review team
