The Beaumont-Wilshire Newsletter is a bi-monthly publication (6 issues a year) staffed by Board members of the Beaumont-Wilshire Neighborhood Association (BWNA) and volunteers from the neighborhood. Black and white paper copies are distributed to over 2600 neighborhood residences and businesses, and a color version is available online at the BWNA Web site (www.bwna.us). Residents are encouraged to submit articles and announcements (limited to 300 words) or "Letter to the Board" editorials on topics of local concern (limited to 150 words), all of which are subject to editing. Local merchants and organizations may purchase ads in two different sizes for a minimum of 3 issues, with a discount given for 6 issues
