    CT town of about 15,000 – I know a lot of the locals and mentioned our family would be participating this year. Well, the paper is sending a reporter out to our house next week to interview us about the “Flags on the 48” and may run an article with pictures ! 😮

    2 things;
    – Is there any other info on the event not on this site that a reporter might be interested in ?
    – Everyone should get the email address of their local paper’s editor and send them the press release and link to this site.

    Which paper in Western Conn? I’m not too far from there. The History button at the top basically tells the story of the event and how it came to be.

    One of our hikers works for the AP. She helps us out greatly with the Press Release matters.

    For the first question, I can’t think of anything. We’ve got the history, the forums, the photo galleries … all here.

    Oh, except the A-10 video. We have a link to it, but it’s served off someone else’s site.

    Keep in mind that if any reporter wants to use an image out of the galleries we’ll have to contact the original photographer for permission.

    – The paper interested is “The Brookfield Journal”, Danbury News Times may be also, we’ll see.
    – I’ll let the reporter know anything used needs permission first.

    okay, tomorrow night is said interview. I need some more eloquent quotable qoutes than “I think it’s a great way to memorialize the day” although I’ll use that. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    okay, we were front page, below the fold in this weeks paper. There was a nice picture of us and the first half of the article was good, but the second half petered-out. Good publicity for the event, though. I’ve already had a couple calls from friends asking about it. No picture in the link but this is the story; http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=17014531&BRD=1656&PAG=461&dept_id=13278&rfi=6

    Thanks to you and your family for being a part of this event and helping to spread the word.

    I hope you saved the article!? One day it will be FOT48 memorabilia, archival stuff even…

    I’ll bring an extra copy of the paper for who (whom ?) ever’d like to keep it.
