This weekend, we bring 2017 to a close and ring in 2018. As we reflect on the year, ThurstonTalk is thankful for the ongoing support of the community as we strive to share the positive things happening around Thurston County. Each day, ThurstonTalk publishes articles that share what it’s like to live, work and play in our region of the Pacific Northwest and this year, we published 1,816+ stories. Our largest number yet. Happy New Year to our readers. 2018 is sure to bring more positive stories from us. If you have a story idea for our team, please email us at Cheers!
