Glassner Discusses the Demise of Local Newspapers

1/2/2024 – Club: Ashland

Despite a sparsely attended dinner meeting on January 2nd (only about 20 attendees), those present were treated to member Greg Glassner’s presentation of the demise, countrywide, of most local newspapers.  In making his talk, Greg relied on his decades of experience in working for many such papers – from junior reporter to editor to operating manager.  His recounting of the many different roles he played as a “newspaper man” enthralled his listeners.

Holiday Dinner well-attended


Our December 18 Christmas Dinner in Birdsong Hall, Randolph-Macon College, was well-attended by members and their spouses/guests.  Good food and conversation were the order of the evening with announcements/speaches kept to a minimum.  Suzanne DuBose, Ruth Smith and Lyn Hodnett were among those enjoying the evening.
