Staying Connected

The Valley Reporter wants to hear from you about how COVID-19 is impacting you, your families, your jobs and businesses. Over the next few days and weeks, we will be reaching out to community members for their perspectives and insights.

You can send us video & audio files to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at 496-3607. We are also collaborating with the Mad River Valley 4-Season Guide and you can fill out a form as part of their The MRV Stories of Resilience Project. The Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce is figuring out how to create video content to record stories, details to come soon.

“We’re cognizant of the fact that we’re creating the record of how this pandemic is hitting our community, and we fully understand its historic relevance for The Valley, Vermont, the country and the world. So, please help us gather your stories and share them with us,” said Valley Reporter editor Lisa Loomis.

The Valley Reporter is hopeful that reading about how neighbors are doing and their strategies for coping will keep us connected to each other during this time of isolation.

“Our intention is to get a full cross section of our community for this historical perspective including grocers, bartenders, waitresses, lift ops, retail stores, parents homeschooling, clerks, mail carriers, second-homeowners, property managers, carpenters, farmers – all of you!” said Loomis.
