The Powell River Peak is our hometown newspaper.
Two issues are published each week, the Wednesday subscription edition and the Friday Weekend Shopper. I just love this paper.
When Wayne and I first discovered Powell River, we started subscribing and had the papers mailed to our home near Los Angeles. We would sit and read all the articles, editorials (quite feisty at times), and ads from cover to cover. I especially enjoy the commercial and classified ads. You learn so much about a town from what people are buying, selling, and announcing. Now that we live in Powell River, we get our delivery here in town, and I love our hometown paper more than ever.
The PEAK does have a free online version, but it doesn't include all of those wonderful ads. But you can subscribe to a digital version that does include everything.
The PEAK also uses social media to reach out to readers. Check out:
