Glens Falls and surrounding communities are great places to live and raise a family. We are blessed to have great schools, great health-care providers, great natural beauty and an abundance of recreational opportunities, from hiking and skiing in the Adirondacks to boating on Lake George. I have been a community member for over 25 years and wouldn’t trade living here for anywhere else (even if the winters are a bit long for my taste).
The Post-Star and you, the reader, are in this together. You may not think of it this way, but we always have. Making Glens Falls and our neighboring communities stronger makes The Post-Star stronger. And making The Post-Star stronger can make the community stronger.
Last month saw examples of us coming together on opposite extremes. Watching the community mobilize to support the Common Roots brewery in their time of need after a stunning fire, just as they were expanding their business, was inspiring and showed how we come together in a time of need. On the opposite end of the emotional spectrum, the region’s unmatched support of the triumphs of the Glens Falls High School boys and Cambridge High School girls basketball teams’ state championships showed again the strength of our community.
The Post-Star’s commitment to sharing these stories to the Glens Falls community is unparalleled. That’s why we are rolling out a new subscription model on Monday called “News+”.
News+ is built around the idea that our readers just aren’t subscribers. They are members. And while we have convenient options to help you get your news when and how you want it, membership also brings new content, new features and special benefits.
You can learn more about each level and its benefits online at poststar.com/members.
Strong newspapers — and their websites — contribute to strong communities. Local news sheds light on the things we can do better and gives voice to the very best things about Glens Falls and the North Country. That’s why we need members — not just subscribers.
Membership does have its privileges, and one of them is the knowledge that The Post-Star and the community are stronger when we stand together.
