Ark Valley Voice invites our readers to stop in at Benson’s from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7 as we celebrate our shift to becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and continue our “Christmas in August —- September” fund drive.

Join us in the outside patio area of Bensons, located at 128 North F Street in Salida to meet our reporters, ask questions, and we hope, consider contributing to the production of free, fact-based local news.

As an independent news source we bring you and our community stories and news without any barriers to receiving it — optimized for your computer, tablet, or mobile phone — wherever you happen to be.

Just go to any time, any day, to get real-time news.  If you show up Wednesday evening, we’ll show you how to put the AVV app right on your mobile phone, available instantly, no matter where you are or what time zone you’re in.

We blend the news of our valley with the news across our region, state, and nation because frankly — it’s interconnected. What happens out there — matters here. What happens here — matters out there. Whether it’s local government, elections, climate change, and environmental challenges, wildfire, or educational issues — AVV covers it. Supporting other nonprofits — we know the community is grateful we do that!

If you can’t join us this Wednesday evening, please take a moment to consider what it means to get your news from an unbiased news source. A news source where every dollar of donations to AVV has a purpose: to support our dedicated journalists, who in turn will help keep you informed; honestly, factually, calmly, continuously.

Christmas might be sliding into September just a bit, but we believe in our readers. As journalists, it is our job to give the news to you straight. If what we do matters to you, we hope you’ll consider a donation — just click on the button near the top of this story.

All Our Best,

The AVV Crew
