I normally take three or four copies of The Informer to my job every Thursday and place them on the table in our office break room. I’ve been doing this for about two years now. To my surprise, one of my co-workers approached me and thanked me for bringing The Informer to our office. They said they would not have had any idea of the positive things that take place in and around Washington, D.C., and the community at large if not for reading them in The Informer. They also said they read the paper without fail while eating their lunch every Thursday, and that they now view The Informer as a great source for information when it comes to the D.C. area. This is something that I have always known, but it made me feel real good to know that now someone else in my office sees the real treasure that The Washington Informer is to the D.C. area.
