Over the last few months, we have been cooking up a few new regular series for you with different writers, some new to this blog, and some regular. They will be publishing over the next few weeks. Here's what we got:
"Postcards From Beacon"
This will start as a monthly column, but may expand to something more than once a month or weekly because it is just so interesting. Diane Lapis, Trustee of the Beacon Historical Society, is sharing the wealth of her knowledge, drawn from their collection of ephemera. The first article will be on wordplay and a history of the name of Beacon; it will be followed by more postcards and the stories behind the pictures on them. A Little Beacon Blog is making a contribution to the Beacon Historical Society for each article written for this series.

Council Meetings - Typed Out!
Not sure about you, but watching the videos and the meetings on TV is amazing, but can be difficult if you don't have time to play the entire thing. Plus, sometimes you want to do a search for when or where something happened, or in what meeting a topic was covered. Contributor Dylan Price is transcribing the City Council Meetings and most likely the Planning Board Meetings and some Workshops. We already have another article coming for you, and needed to dive into a Workshop to get a quote. This series will be a trial run, as it is something we are doing on our own, and we are not stenographers, so videos are transcribed to the best of our ability. No commentary will be added, it is just the written version of everyone who spoke or gave comment at a meeting.
Oh man, we are sitting on three articles for this one starting last December, and already one of the businesses we were covering is going through a major change again right now. We started with our own change, and will move to the next ones.
