Curious about the people, places and traditions of Redmond? If so, read The Redmond Recorder News, our newsletter that has been published ten times a year since 1999!


The Redmond Recorder News was once the name of Redmond's local newspaper. It was replaced by the Sammamish Valley News, which later folded. We've since adopted The Redmond Recorder as the name for our newsletter, published 9 times a year since 1999. We have archived copies going back to the first newsletter published, May 1999.
