Citizens for a Better Granby (CBG) is looking for a new managing editor for the Drummer. CBG President Kathy Norris has announced that Rita Isaacson will be stepping down from her duties as managing editor at the end of 2022.

Isaacson has managed the Drummer for the past 16 years, streamlining work processes and guiding the volunteer staff in the creation and production of the monthly publication. From a print-only newspaper, it is now available online as well.

Under Isaacson’s guidance the Drummer has garnered numerous awards in the Connecticut Press Club’s annual competition for writing, photography and design. Most recently, in 2021, the newspaper qualified to move from that competition to the national level, achieving an honorable mention from the National Federation of Press Women.

“We are enormously grateful for Rita’s dedicated service and commitment to the Drummer and are fortunate that she plans to stay involved as an active Drummer volunteer,” stated Norris.
