When the coronavirus pandemic hit in March The Bedford Citizen’s calendar listings dwindled as organizations and Town boards canceled events and meetings. But times are beginning to change: Board and Committee meetings are taking place via Zoom, organizations are planning virtual or outdoor events, and fundraisers have returned.
With a 54% increase in its news story count since March, The Citizen’s bandwidth needed a boost to revive its publicity initiative. Please join me in welcoming Elizabeth Nemirovsky, a volunteer who is breathing life into BeTC (aka Betsy), The Bedford Citizen‘s town-wide calendar.
“I value The Bedford Citizen and its interest in reaching and supporting all the different sectors of Bedford’s diverse community,” Nemirovsky said. “I rely on it for relevant news and events.”
When her Rosie the COVIDitor project ended in early September, Nemirovsky mentioned looking for a worthwhile volunteer project. The Citizen is grateful that she responded positively to the suggestion that she might be just the person to revive BeTC.
“I’m excited to breathe life back into the calendar and will enjoy developing relationships with all the community members who may have events to share,” said Nemirovsky. And The Citizen’s gratitude is boundless.
Over the past three weeks, Nemirovsky has begun reaching out to remind Bedford organizations of the calendar’s possibilities.
