Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Great video and great characters. If you can cope with the off-key country music, the dangerous pie-eating competition (choking hazard) and the reference to “when in the 1970’s when the hippies arrived” (I was one of them), this short movie shows a strong connected community celebrating their identity in a very ideal location.
    Lovely stuff.

  2. A good snapshot of a terrific country show, things to entertain young and old. The people were there to have fun, and they did. Other shows could learn a lot be coming to see how you run your show.
