Starting today, customers at the Mill Mountain Coffee and Tea at 4710-A Starkey Road will notice something different — a drop-off box for submissions to SWoCo, our new community newspaper and website for Southwest Roanoke County.
Yes, we know you’re reading this online — and scattered all over this site are links where you can submit news and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Don’t forget the dash!)
But we also know that not everybody is online — and sometimes not everything is easy to send across the Internet.
So that’s why we have a drop box. Think of this as our Southwest Roanoke County bureau.
We also know that sometimes it’s good to just sit and chat — and that’s why Emily Flora, our community journalist for Southwest Roanoke County, will be holding “office hours” at Mill Mountain Coffee and Tea on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. That’s her picture on the right.
She’s eager to hear your ideas about covering our community — so stop by and share some news the old-fashioned way.
