Southwest Journal celebrates 20th anniversary

The Journal staff thanks everyone who came out to celebrate the newspaper’s 20th anniversary at the Lake Harriet Bandshell on July 15.

We enjoyed beautiful weather, great music by the Dean Brewington Quintet and had a wonderful time celebrating with the community two decades of outstanding community journalism. We were also very honored to receive a proclamation from Mayor R.T. Rybak declaring July 15, 2010 Southwest Journal Day in the city of Minneapolis.

The people who put out the newspaper are very grateful to loyal readers and the advertisers who support the Journal. We look forward to serving the neighborhoods of southwest Minneapolis for many more years to come. We are committed to high quality reporting about important neighborhood and civic issues, and love to spotlight the unique personalities and businesses that make the area such a wonderful place to live.
