Holy Smokes, we did it.
Thanks to you.
GO LOCAL TEAM
Back when it became evident that Corona was not just a beer you drink when you’re all out of the good (local) stuff, it felt wrong to talk about anything other than surviving. It was difficult to wonder how this cheery magazine would fit into the ever-devolving doomscape of 2020. Producing a grassroots publication is no small task, even in “normal” times, and we hoped it wasn’t foolhardy to press on, COVID be damned. We resolved to stomach any losses in hopes that, at the very least, a vibrant representation of our community would bring a smile to our readers during a tough time. We’re humbled and deeply grateful that our ride-or-die Flathead Valley advertisers committed to this magazine when the world turned upside down and nobody knew what would happen next. We still don’t have that crystal ball, but here’s something we do know: We’re so stupidly lucky to be here, with you. See you next time.
