At its heart, the Bayfield Breeze was created as a place to share the latest happenings in the village highlighted by articles and photos. It is a news source primarily created for, with and by its residents. Since it was first established in the summer of 2009, neighboring communities have grown to enjoy this “paperless” paper as well. As a result, the issues now benefit from an expanded base of news including some of the goings on beyond Bayfield’s borders that may be of interest to locals.
