In positive, non-COVID-related news, Friday marks two years since the first issue of The Lake Report hit the streets of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Wow. What a time it’s been. It feels like forever ago, especially living in this new world. But all things aside, we want to take this opportunity to thank all of our dedicated readers, writers, editors, volunteers and generous supporters.

And, of course, our advertisers, who have for the most part stuck with us through these immensely challenging times. We would not be able to provide NOTL’s favourite newspaper to the residents of our town without your support.

So here’s a look at some of the amazing things we’ve done this year.

Our Falling into the Lake documentary about NOTL’s eroding shoreline received more than 11,000 views on YouTube. We are proud.

We learned from a third-party readership survey that the overwhelming majority NOTL residents prefer The Lake Report for their NOTL news and information. It’s a humbling feeling, and we are very proud.

We’ve raised money for various charitable initiatives, such as supporting the NOTL Legion.

We’ve made great, long-lasting relationships with more residents of our town through covering their stories. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us.

This town matters to us, and we are grateful to be able to write about it.
