Facebook104Tweet0Pin0 On February 20, The Weekly Volcano announced their reader’s choice awards and presented ThurstonTalk with the “Best Thurston County Based Website.”“While we can count a variety of honors in our ‘trophy case,’ we were sincerely humbled by the recognition of our readers,” says ThurstonTalk’s Editor, Amy Rowley.On a daily basis, ThurstonTalk publishes positive stories about people, businesses and organizations doing good things in our community. To have our 250,000+ readers show their appreciation in this fashion is truly a gift. It gives us direct feedback that the service we provide to the community is valued.Positive stories catch the attention of Thurston County residents. Perhaps it was a story about a high school athlete or maybe you enjoyed reading about a favorite local business. Possibly you learned about a new non-profit and decided to get involved. Or, you found out about an upcoming event and opted to attend. Or, maybe you were looking to entertain out of town visitors and turned to our calendar.Regardless of the story that initially peaked your interest, you voted us as your “go to” source for all things Thurston County.Stories, photos, and our event calendar will continue to be free to access. As a resource to the community, we will continue to shed light on the good things happening around us.Thank you, readers. For a complete look back at what we accomplished in 2012, click here.
