Sparklers that lit up Main Street at Z’Sparkle, trumpets blaring down the parade route, the smell of burgers on the grill at the Friendly Tavern filling the air … I don’t know exactly what it was but it lured me back. This little Village has grown on me and made it impossible to leave.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you may live in the Village or its surrounding neighborhoods but you likely haven’t fully experienced life here. It’s not just the quaint shops but the warm and welcoming atmosphere, the enchanting personalities and the events that always seem to help someone from outside its borders. Yes, Zionsville is a special place. (And remember, I’m from Carmel!)
So, it’s good to see you again along Main Street and around town. I am back helping with our Zionsville edition but not in the managing editor role. My role has been expanded to assist with all five of our papers, focusing on special projects as well as training new writers and forming partnerships in the community.
If you have a gift or interest in writing, please contact me. We are always on the lookout for writers and reporters, especially those of you out there who love your community and our paper.
It’s great to be back on the bricks and I hope to see you around town sometime soon. And my wandering continues…
