Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Mountain Ascent!
With this new monthly newsletter, our New Economy program hopes to shine a light on the Southwest Virginia communities working to face the challenges of today and build a viable economy for their future. In each issue, we’ll feature news and stories of real people that demonstrate the successes (and even failures) that are essential building blocks to ensure our region remains an incredible place to live. We hope we inspire our readers with these stories that show the results that can be achieved through community action.
Sign up to receive the Mountain Ascent each month!
And please share your news from Southwest Virginia that makes you feel inspired (email firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll try to include it in a future issue.
