LS: Your Town Column October 05, 2008
My speaking career is starting to take shape.
I had a fun time talking to the folks at the American Legion Post 37 during their monthly luncheon last month. I shared some tidbits with the audience regarding The Daily Sentinel and its new format as well as the challenges the newspaper industry is rising up to meet, in answer to a tech savvy world.
We then launched into a fun and informative Q&A session on a variety of topics ranging from “how do we get the news?” to “how do the inserts get in the paper?”
I quickly realized that many of our readers have questions or concerns that I can answer. Would your club or organization in the Grand Valley would be interested in me coming to share a tasty tidbit or two about The Daily Sentinel and newspaper industry with your members?
com and lets talk about it.
I won’t turn down lunch, either.
Speaking of tasty tidbits ...

• Saturday is now even better.

The group began in the 1940s as a way for wives of servicemen fighting the war to get together one evening a month.
