The trees in Sylvania City & Township are singularly perfect, each and every one, and so are the saplings below.  Each one-time purchase of support is named after a favorite tree that, once planted in Sylvania, will grow and have a lasting impact in your neck of the woods... just like your support.

 
Thank you for taking the time to get involved with your community--
Your support does make a difference!

local new

"Local reporters used to covering everything from hurricanes to high school sports are helping people keep up to date on stay-at-home orders and school openings as well as the latest on social justice issues and protests in their local communities. 

In partnership with Google, the Local Media Association and Local Media Consortium—which together represent more than 5,000 news outlets in the U.S. and Canada—are launching the “Support Local News” campaign across a breadth of local outlets that includes media organizations of color. This effort will raise awareness of the difficulties facing local news providers across a diversity of communities, and encourage more advertising, subscriptions and donations to fund local newsrooms.   

In addition to being the only news outlet solely covering Sylvania City & Township local news, over the years, you have seen the work Sylvania News has done for the community all around the town, though you would not have seen our name on it;  Since day one, Sylvania News/ Simply Sylvania has created, printed, published and distributed flyers, posters, and important news alerts and announcements for our community, including Sylvania firefighters, Sylvania Schools, and Sylvania Area Family Services-- always free of charge, never a cost to businesses or organizations, including print/production costs for posters.  From the Firefighter's pancake breakfast and school & sporting events to fundraisers like The Chocolate Affair for SAFS, Sylvania News has always supported the sharing of information in every way possible.

 

Local journalism at its best can make life better for everybody in the community it serves."
