  2. Make a Difference Day is coming up fast, and there are a whole slew of community projects that individuals and groups can support with donations and labor.
  3. A group of civic leaders from the Wenatchee Valley met this week to talk about the possibility of entering a contest to be named one of America’s Best Communities, a program launched by Frontier Communications.
