When your birthday rolls around, you want to shout it to the world. You want people to recognize that you’ve made it another year, even if that year is 29 for the thirteenth time.
This month The Windham Eagle turns three! We couldn’t be prouder or more excited about becoming a toddler. As with all 3-year-olds we are running around and into everything. We can always use more help finding out and exploring our communities.
I love it when I’m asked how long I’ve worked at the newspaper. My answer is simple…since the beginning, three years ago. Most people can’t believe we’ve only been arriving in their mailboxes for three years. Some days it feels like we’ve been a part of our area for a lot longer.
We love what we are doing, helping local businesses, introducing you to local celebrities and keeping you up on what’s happening in Windham, Raymond and sometimes beyond that.
To celebrate we asked local businesses to tell us how long they’ve been in business. Running a business is hard. There are constant demands on time, energy and resources. Owning a business is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Please celebrate with us the businesses that have chosen to partner with us as we all celebrate our successes.
The Windham Eagle is constantly striving to become better, cover more and reach more people. Recently we have added a strong social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter. We have added online advertising to many of our stories and we are seeing the results of those efforts. We continue to accept your letters and story suggestions. We want to be the newspaper you turn to when you want to see what’s happening in the area.
We continue to be the positive paper that covers the solutions. So if you have news or know someone who is doing something special, please email us at editor@TheWindhamEagle.com. If you’d like to partner with us and reach 11,000 people each week, email us.
Happy Birthday! Enjoy the party.
