Five more weeks until the one-year anniversary of our announcement of the Town Crier Membership model, and existing Members already have begun renewing their Memberships. Of course, they do not lose anything by renewing early because renewals are always tacked on to the end of a Membership’s existing expiration date.

Please plan on renewing your Membership — and if you haven’t signed up yet, you or your business still have an opportunity to join as a Charter Members of the Town Crier, which Charter Membership will close on Sept. 1. We are confident that prospective new owners/publishers will note that the TC’s Membership model continues successfully into a second year.

We are pleased to welcome a new member this week. The historic Red Wolf Lodge has newly changed hands and has become a Patron of the Town Crier. Welcome, and thank you for your generous support!

Also, please plan to attend our weekly news meetings, which are open to the public, Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m. at the Town Crier office. That’s when we discuss and decide on news stories for the upcoming week.
