Our first Hero membership arrived in October, from Truckee resident Heather Boger. What a treat in time for Halloween! Another 15 members signed up this month as well. The tribe keeps on growing. Thank you to each of you willing to support independent journalism in our community — your time and dedication are invaluable.

Also, a reminder that all members are invited to our weekly editorial meeting on Mondays. This is a key way to give the Moonshine team story feedback and ideas. Email members@moonshineink.com by the previous Thursday to request access.

If you’ve given a one-time contribution before, we thank you!! And ask that you please consider a recurring membership to fund our continued work. Visit moonshineink.com/members.


Keep shining everyone!
