Welcome to Philomath sign
Columnist Eric Niemann is posing the question to you: “What do you love about Philomath?” (File photo by Brad Fuqua/Philomath News)

Philomath is a special place. Philomath in Greek means “love of learning.” The Philomath News would like to learn what you love about Philomath? Is it the people? Is it the Frolic? Is it the fireworks? Is it the schools? Is it something unique?

Please take a heart and use a pen and write what you love about Philomath by Friday, Feb. 5. You can write your name on it or remain anonymous. It is up to you. Leave your heart in the collection box at Timber Towne Coffee.

For those who can’t make it to Timber Towne, feel free to email what you love about Philomath to LifeinPhilomath@gmail.com.

In my February column, I’ll share what is in our hearts before Valentine’s Day! Let’s share the love, Philomath.
