**Readers have asked for an Obituary section. Obituaries are now an option on The Newsteader. Please talk to your funeral director about that, or you can contact The Newsteader directly for pricing**
If you have news or a story to share, for example: Your child wins an award, opening a new business, or someone turning 100, we want to hear about it! We want to showcase our residents! There are several links on the site to “contact us”, please fill out the form and someone will get back to you ASAP.
If you have a community event/fundraiser, please let us know so we can get it on the calendar and let everyone know about it.
