Welcome to Chippewa Valley Family
a special message from publisher Nick Meyer
Welcome to Chippewa Valley Family, a brand new resource to help you and yours live the most robust and well-rounded lives possible in Western Wisconsin. We’re a complete guide for local events, listings, stories, and perspectives, all delivered through a family-oriented lens that explores themes including community, discovery, creativity, activity, living, and more.
You may be familiar with CVF’s sister publication, Volume One, which for the last 13 years has covered culture and entertainment in the Chippewa Valley. Well now everyone at Volume One – staff, contributors, and friends – are bringing more than a decade of experience in the community to this new publication, and we all can’t wait to get started.
The website you’re on now (whether on your computer or mobile device) is only part of the exciting new equation for local family media. From this site you can also click to Facebook where you’ll find our often-updated page of helpful local links and tips – so be sure to “like” us and follow our feed. You can also sign up for occasional emails straight to your inbox with the latest local family news. And of course, coming in July will be the first print edition of Chippewa Valley Family – a beautiful collection of stories, events, and resources distributed at more than 200 locations every other month. Click here for a list of locations where you can find us in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, and Menomonie. Truly now more than ever, you’ll have up-to-date information on family-related events and happenings all at your fingertips, anytime.
We want to use these new platforms to create an even stronger sense of community within the local family scene and take our region’s family-friendly vibe to the next level.
