Citizens For A Better Norwood

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Sunday was our birthday, and it’s time to name names!

We are officially in our fourth year blogging, and this is our 1,354th blog since we opened for business August 2, 2006. Who would ever have thought we’d have made it this far? Well, the truth is we wouldn’t have were not for the guest blogs, news items, interviews, news tips and other contributions from community members, some of whom wished to remain anonymous. We’ve gone through the past year’s archives and collected the names of most if not all of the people who have helped make our content relevant, timely, and interesting for our readers. Thank you from the bottom of our 3-year-old hearts! And a big thank you to all our readers for visiting and commenting on our topics.
