The “Know Your Neighbor” section of our newspaper is published weekly to highlight members of our community who work hard every day to make Whitney a better place. We use it as a way to welcome newcomers to the area as well as to spotlight longtime Whitney natives. It’s a fun way for Whitney residents to get to know each other.
