Congratulations on five years!

Over the past five years the Westlake | Bay Village Observer has certainly established itself as a terrific resource to learn of the wide diversity of news, events, history and personal perspectives to be found within our two great communities (or even a far-flung continent or two).

For those of us who enjoy holding an actual newspaper while gleaning all of this information, this takes place within a very nicely edited, composed and printed document – on paper stock with a bit of heft to it, no less. (Oh, and they actually ran a couple of nostalgia pieces I scribbled out earlier this year, but please don't hold that against them.)

Well done, Westlake | Bay Village Observer staff and contributors!
