Subscription drive continues

 In Opinion

The Echo crew will be back at the Creemore Farmers’ Market again this Saturday for our annual subscription drive. Thank you to everyone who has come by to say hello and give us words of encouragement.

It is very gratifying to hear that The Creemore Echo has and continues to be an important link to the community, especially during the lockdowns. Now that we are seeing each other in person we hope to get back to seeing smiling faces in the pages of The Echo, along with lots of events and community initiatives.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time visiting with people at the market. It’s funny how in some ways we have just picked up where we left off, as if we didn’t miss a beat, even though it was more like a whole bar.

This will be the last week that The Echo is at the market to collect subscriptions but there are still many ways to support your local independent community newspaper.

You can always pick up a newspaper for free from your mailbox or at a number of local vendors. You can come into the office at 3 Caroline St. W. To take out or update your subscription and/or sign up for an electronic version sent out each Thursday by email. You can visit our website at to see our online events calendar and read up on backstories. There is also a link online to subscribe.

The base subscription is $55 per year, with additional levels of support being a booster ($75), a champion ($100), a patron ($200), and after that the sky is the limit. We like to joke that the additional levels of support get you all the benefits of a regularsubscriber… but with the knowledge that you are doing a little extra to preserve community news, and if you’ll indulge us, we will print your name as part of our subscriber recognition program.

Other ways to support The Echo? Send us a news tip, write us a letter to the editor, or advertise with us. It all helps to keep The Echo healthy and sustainable.

Thank you to everyone who makes The Echo an essential part of your weekly routine. We hope to see you on Saturday.
