A Quiet Weekend?
The Front Page, week of June 11, 2022
Not too much to share with you this week, but there is a lot going on behind the scenes. I’ve nearly completed a draft of our freelancer agreement, I’ve been told our nonprofit registration paperwork should be clearing another hurdle soon, and we’re beginning to organize a social media regimen.
Most exciting for me personally is that I’ve finally started digging in on my first article in a while. It’s tricky, switching from reporting during regular business hours to working almost exclusively outside of them, but I’m happy to be directly involved in reporting again.
I’m looking forward to sharing the story with you.
The summer is getting noisy, with Bridgefest next weekend and Performances in the Park, Canal Rock, and other summer concert series about to kick off. Check out their line-ups here, and send your events to email@example.com.
