Want to talk face-to-face for a change? Visit me at Mainstreet Coffee on Friday between 10 and noon.
Sometimes you just want to talk to someone instead of emailing or leaving a comment on a story. Since East Greenwich Patch has no official office, that can be hard. We've decided to institute weekly "office hours" to help. So, tomorrow morning between 10 a.m. and noon, I'll be at Mainstreet Coffee and I'd love to meet you! Whether you want to chew me out in person, or are just curious about Patch, say hello. I want to hear your ideas, your thoughts, your critiques. If you're not sure who I am, ask the folks behind the counter to point me out. East Greenwich is a small town, but it's not that small. Let's make it a little smaller.
