Window on the West
Today, we’d like to reprint a column originally published on Nov. 27, 2017.

At this time of the year, thankfulness seems to be the fitting expression.
I would like to say thanks to all the volunteers who have helped this past year at the Wyandotte Daily.
Our volunteer writers, who have journalism degrees, give up their time to help the community become better informed about current events. Our volunteer photographers likewise have spent hours of their own time to bring you a glimpse of what’s happening in the community.
They know that it is important to have an independent presence to detail important events and issues here. Without them, the community would not be as well informed.
Thanks again to our volunteers, and to all who make it possible for us to cover the news in the community. We wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
