The Granby Drummer is thrilled to announce that our new managing editor is Jen Bell. Jen has been a member of the Citizens for a Better Granby (CBG) board for the past two years and a volunteer on our advertising staff. She will be joined by Leisa Ritchie as production supervisor and Daneika Janski as advertising coordinator.
Rita Isaacson, our retiring managing editor, will work with the new team during the Drummer’s transition to new managing editorial leadership. Rita will also serve as a consultant to the CBG board.
Finding Rita’s replacement wasn’t easy, but we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of our search. Jen brings exceptionally strong writing, marketing, communication and organizational skills to the Drummer—and she loves sharing her enthusiasm for Granby and its attributes. Leisa is our current social media specialist. She has a background in visual communication design. Daneika is a Drummer volunteer and she will be updating our website in addition to managing advertising processes. Lastly, we are grateful to Rita for staying on to share her innumerable skills and vast knowledge in helping our new team get up and running.
And, now, a few words from Jen:
“I am excited to be increasing my involvement with the Drummer. My primary goal is to maintain the level of excellence that has been established while supporting our dedicated volunteers, our loyal advertisers, and our readers. I look forward to this challenge and I welcome your ideas so that the Drummer can continue to evolve and thrive.”
Thank you to our new editorial team, all of our volunteers and our advertisers! We couldn’t publish the Drummer without you. It’s impossible for us to overstate your contributions.
