LATEST FEEDBACK!

“We did a survey last year of our guests and many of them said they knew about our event, [Watoga Art in the Park], from Hashtag Lewisburg publication…exciting!” – Gail Hyer, Marketing Specialist at Pocahontas County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. June 18, 2018.

“Your article featuring the Asylum’s Burger of the Week helped boost sales and draw attention to our ongoing burger specials. It’s clear that Hashtag Lewisburg is being used as a guide to what’s going on in Lewisburg. It’s definitely the “Social Newspaper.” Christina does an excellent job! – Paula Marie Thomas, Asylum manager. October 24, 2017.

Donating = Loving

HashtagWV remains D.I.Y. in nature and it takes hundreds of hours a month to research and write, and thousands of dollars to sustain. If you find any joy and value in it, please consider making a one time or recurring monthly donation of your choosing, between a cup of coffee at The Wild Bean and a good dinner at Food & Friends
