Mailbag: Warrendale Newsletter

I have been away from the entire blogospere for most of the past week - spending way too much (or nowhere near enough depending on your perspective) time in Hamtramck during the Blowout. I've let my blogging duties fall to the wayside for the past few days, but I have to say that I'm impressed by the volume of comments that were left on this blog.

I have to thank Carla Thomas and Janice Slomba-Koss for pitching my responding to some of the questions that some readers asked during my rock 'n roll induced absence.

There are, however, a couple of quick questions that I wanted to respond to directly, starting with this one from Nick:
Does the Warrendale Community Organization print a community newsletter and distribute it to the houses in the community?
Unfortunately, we do not. The reason for that is simply the costs associated with printing and distributing to more than 9,000 homes in the neighborhood. If we could find the funding for something like that, I certainly wouldn't be opposed to it.

In the meantime, however, the WCO is leveraging other resources to the get the word out. I'm working on getting a regular column in the church papers for the different churches within the neighborhood. Plus, while this blog is not an official voice of the WCO, there is obviously a lot of information here about its efforts.
