Watershed Voice celebrated two years of news, culture, and community on Saturday with supporters and friends, two years and a day after the publication launched on April 8, 2020.
Cake and hot dogs were eaten, music was played, and conversations were had in the name of community and the journalism this community supports. We want to thank Weenie Kings, who despite less than ideal weather conditions stuck it out with us, and as always, served up the best hot dogs in St. Joseph County.
We’d also like to thank our sponsors, who helped pay for enough cake to feed 100 folks and then some. Lowry’s Books & More, The Huss Project, *culture is not optional, Deerfield Counseling and the George Washington Carver Community Center all chipped in to make this event possible. A special shoutout to The Huss Project who once again provided Watershed Voice with a most excellent venue.
Lastly and most importantly, we’d like to thank the community of Three Rivers and St. Joseph County for believing in and supporting this publication. Whether you’ve made a donation, gotten a subscription, penned a piece or simply lent your voice, you’ve helped make Watershed Voice what it is today. And for that, we thank you.
Alek Haak-Frost is executive editor and publisher of Watershed Voice. Deborah Haak-Frost is grateful for every ray of sunshine that reaches her skin. She is the Caretaker for Community Engagement at GilChrist Retreat Center in Three Rivers.
