Residents may have noticed a special delivery in their mailboxes earlier this week.
Last fall, after the disappointing news broke regarding the closure of Metroland community newspapers such as the Stittsville News, a team of dedicated individuals rallied together to see what could be done to replace this important staple within our communities. Now, the first edition of the Kanata Stittsville Community Voice is officially hot off the presses!
That’s right! The Community Newspaper is back!
The paper sports a fresh new look and aims to highlight interesting news stories about the community and the people who live in it. Publications will take place every two weeks and be delivered to all residences within both the Kanata and Stittsville boundaries by Canada Post.
Community news is important. It brings people within an area closer together by providing stories worth sharing about neighbours, friends, and loved ones!
I would like to provide my sincere thanks to the team of people who helped to make this new paper a reality: publisher, Michael Wollock; and editor, Patrick Ugoccioni. Rounding out the writing team is former Kanata/West Carleton journalist, Jessica Cunha and Stittsville local/former editor-in-chief of the Stittsville News, John Curry!
It is great to see a community news presence back in the community. Thank you all for all of your hard work and commitment to providing quality news stories every day.
I encourage all residents to pick up their copy in the mail this week and give it a read through! Who knows? There may be a story about someone you know!
