We recently hit our goal of 175 members and sent out our latest locally commissioned postcard featuring the inaugural Explore West St. Paul Days parade. Thanks to our generous supporters who make neighborhood news possible.
The postcard shows several views of the Explore West St. Paul Days parade, captured by student photographer Sam Amundson. It was the first city parade since the pandemic and the inaugural event since the city took over the annual celebration. We were thrilled to commission Amundson to take pictures of the parade and share that event.

We send these unique West St. Paul postcards as our way of saying thanks to our members who support neighborhood news.
