The Lake Report is doubling its production due to popular demand.
We will now be printing 10,000 copies, with around 8,000 being delivered through Canada Post.
We’ve heard time and time again from readers that they are thrilled to have a local paper that’s just for them.
Many tell us they read cover-to-cover, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to hear it.
We thank all of our readers for their overwhelming support. It’s because of you that we’re able to expand our reach so quickly.
Our next goal is to get to weekly production.
While there is no set time on that goal, we hope to get there as soon as possible.
As well, the Lake Report is moving from printing on the 1st and 15th of each month to printing on the first and third Thursday of each month, so you can expect to find a copy in your mailboxes on Friday if all goes well at Canada Post.
The paper has heard from some who haven’t received a copy in the mail who have asked whether they will be getting one.
There was some initial confusion surrounding the delivery at Canada Post, and some papers were not delivered the last few times. We’ve been told the issue has been resolved, so all residential mailboxes in NOTL should receive a copy.
If you aren’t receiving yours in the mail, please give us a call and let us know.
As well, you’ll be able to find copies at all three local Avondale stores, the community centre, and many local businesses.
To give our readers a sense of just how widely read the paper has become in a short time, we’ve heard back from Canada Post that more than 95 per cent of papers delivered are being taken home.
It’s been a lot of work, and we’re a small staff so we can’t make it to everything yet, but it’s been quite incredible and a lot of fun.
While we may be small, and we might not be able to cover everything we’d like until we expand a bit further, we are dedicated to bringing you the best and only 100 per cent local news for Niagara-on-the-Lake.
We plan to be here, throughout all of the issues that affect this town and its residents for a long time to come.
Thank you for your continued support and for allowing us to keep a print paper going in this town, which deserves it for historic reasons alone, let alone its diverse and enthusiastic residents.
