My name is Glenn Garnes and I am the founder of the Village Connector Community News. I’ve decided to begin writing a column to share with you from my perspective what Village Connector is all about and how I plan to help local communities to thrive and prosper by using our resources.
This column will feature both text articles and video articles from time to time, so I can make sure you understand all the ways that the Village Connector Community News can play a role in helping quality of life where you live to be wonderful for you and your neighbors.
When I talk to people about Village Connector I actually describe it as a “community building system” disguised as an online newspaper”. By that phrase we don’t mean to suggest that we are misleading you, but rather that the Village Connector Community News is much more than just an online newspaper. In fact, it’s one of the most unique newspapers you’ll ever see.
We have a number of special features that you will learn more about as you read this column, but let me share a few with you. The Village Connector Community News has its own social network which allows neighbors to engage in dialogue with each other in an environment that has more of a local community feel to it. The social network features a learning center where we will begin sharing all kinds of great educational content for both kids and adults. We also have our own Internet radio show where we engage the community in dialogue and feature guests who add value to your life.
Our program also includes a charitable giving and fundraising program that actually grows your community while it allows you to raise revenue for your cause. You’ll also love our new “Leader’s Club”, a youth group scheduled for launch shortly. The Leader’s Club will give kids a place to learn and grow in a wholesome environment within the Village Connector Community Social Network, and even be paired off with local merchants in a mentor-protege program. We also have an internship program where students can write for credit or for community hours by becoming the “community reporter” in their neighborhood.
Yes, folks, there’s a lot to the Village Connector Community News, and while it’s not all news, it’s all good! Oh, by the way, we only cover the good news in your community, and that’s because we give you the ability to write it, so this environment is free of politics, crime and controversial topics. Instead, we cover the things we can all be proud of.
I hope you’ll enjoy finding out more about the Village Connector Community News. I am very pleased to be here to serve you!
