The Granby Drummer is a local, all-volunteer newspaper in the town where I live. Having the opportunity to write for The Drummer has allowed me to learn a lot about the town where I live and the people who live there with me. In this post, I thought I’d share some of the stories I’ve written over the past several months …
Most recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with a local. middle-school student athlete named Addyson Earl. Addy has competed successfully in acrobatics, aspires to play soccer in college and participates in cross-country and basketball as well, all while being an honor roll student. You can read more about this talented, young lady here.
At the beginning of March, I met Marti Long, owner of a local business, HOME Fine Arts and Antiques. The resulting article was in the April issue of The Drummer. Marti not only promoted her business during our conversation, but also that of the business next door which was having their Grand Opening when I was at HOME.
When our interview was finished, Marti took me next door to introduce me to Sarah Cowles-Gentile.Sarah and her team at The Whisk, a Connecticut catering business for over 40 years, were excited to be open for business at their newly relocated site in Granby. This article also appeared in the April 2018 issue.
It hasn’t only been personal profiles.
For a few months at the end of 2017 and into the start of 2018, I wrote the Board of Education reports for The Drummer. I also wrote this piece when the Registrars of Voters and teachers and students from Granby Memorial High School work together to have a Board of Education candidates’ forum prior to the town’s 2017 municipal elections.
I’m currently working on another story that will appear in The Granby Drummer’s July issue, and I’ll have some articles in upcoming issues of The Advocate as well. I’m looking forward to sharing what I learn from those with you soon.
