Today marks an important occasion for the Souris Valley Flyer! I can't believe that today is the 100th edition. My first edition came out on May 3rd, 2021, that article was about fundraising for the Hillcrest Museum, I had done a bug spray fundraiser with Avon and donated $310 and then Brittany Parham was selling town apparel and was able to raise $850. Also, the Woodfire Deli was doing latte art as a fundraiser at the time. There was a fire ban and town-wide yard sales had been postponed due to covid. At the bottom of the back page, there was a picture of a moose that was seen around town and then a picture of Stay N Play packages on the back as well.
It is so crazy to look back at this very first article and see how far I have come in 2 years. I've tried a few different things I have kept and some not. I have had lots of different members advertising with the flyer in the past and some now too.
Sanas Expressive Arts and Art Therapy
My Tiny Spa
Doggy Drop Inn and Spaw
Main St Cafe
Lagasse's Studio of Fine Arts
These Souris businesses are what have kept me going and I thank you for the support! There were a few times I thought about ending the flyer due to low views, no real income, and low responses online but I have stuck with it and I am so glad I have because it continues to grow with each passing month!
Something that the flyer is known for is the yearly calendar, people submit Souris photos and I create a calendar with them and add in Souris events as well right in time for Christmas. I also have done a couple of cover photo contests, where people send in their Souris pictures and I will use the winner as the cover photo on the Facebook Page for a while, I think another one will have to be soon! And the last thing is a kids Christmas coloring contest with a Minary Bakery donut prize.
Over the 2 years, I have changed the look of the printed flyer a couple of times until I settled on the one I like currently and I did a complete website look change last year as well. I hope to continue to keep learning and growing!
But the biggest takeaway from the flyer for me has been the other opportunities it has opened up. Not too long after I started posting flyers I was reached out to join the Peacock Days and Fair Committee, and that opened up a whole new world for me in this great town of Souris. I thank you all for coming on here to support the flyer and to find out the latest going on in Souris
