My aunt contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked if I would consider helping her. She is part of the music festival association in her town. The committee wanted to raise awareness of the music festival in their community and thought of having additional exposure in the local newspaper. So she asked me if I would be the volunteer article-writer. Of course I said yes. It's been more than a year and a half since I've written any news stories and I desperately need to revive and hone that skill. So here it is, folks, my first newspaper publication (excluding the SAU student newspaper).
