Summer kicks off in a big way on West Jeff
What a great way to start summer! We are so grateful for everyone who showed up to celebrate with us at the ribbon-cutting for our new office right before the opening of the Trenton Summer Festival, and for the numerous visitors who stopped by to have a cookie and take a tour during the open house that day — or who visit our curbside booth at any point during that weekend.
Even though we lost one festival tent to the storm that blew through on Thursday, and then cut the ribbon in between raindrops Friday morning, it turned out to be a beautiful weekend for us in our new location and for all of the festivalgoers. It was great to be in the “middle” of it all.
This month the Trib is happy to present its first-ever, full color glossy PNC Roar on the River race program, which is tucked inside this issue. Please check it out — and stop by our hospitality tent during the 67th annual event, which is July 14-16 at Elizabeth Park.
We have a busy month ahead getting ready for our August issue, which will include our Senior Living supplement along with the Annual Report of Trenton Public Schools. It will be delivered door-to-door by the Trenton High School Cheer Team Aug. 4-6. Including our Grosse Ile distribution, we will be printing and disseminating 12,500 copies.
This month the Trenton Trib and Island Beacon are happy to welcome two summer interns. Recent Grosse Ile High School grad Haley Eblin, who has been one of our school writers the past two year, will have a chance to experience all the aspects of publishing a community newspaper before departing to start her college career at Syracuse University in August. She also is doing an internship at the Detroit Free Press, so we are very proud of her accomplishments!
Our other intern, Trenton High School senior Tim Kane, will be exposed to all departments of the Trib as well as the marketing programs at Market Insights. Both interns helped out at the Trenton Summer Festival booth and will be helping with events at the Roar on the River as well as other activities around town.
Articles, photos and story ideas are always welcome here. If you’d like to get in touch with us just call 676-0850, email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in at 2615 W. Jefferson Ave. (near the corner of Elm Street).
Additional copies of the Trib and Beacon are available at the office, and we also have copies of the previous month’s issue available next to our office in the lobby, if you happened to miss it.
The office is open 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, and from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Friday. There are occasions that we may have to step out, so it’s always good to give us a quick call first so we are available for you. Got an event coming up? Did you know you can post it to our Web site?
