St Kaz on Avenue A in Turners Falls has graciously donated the hall for the evening and many local businesses and individuals have donated prizes, and there will be plenty of gag gifts

Stash, there was a paper this week, but the delivery person may be on vacation. I believe it will be the same paper next week, and I have no idea if the delivery person will be back and will deliver it then. I do know that you can get one at Weatherhead's, and maybe Carroll's (?), as well as Scotty's.
The MR has received a huge amount of donations. Much more than we are expected. So it appears we have it all from bikes to books,clothes, sports and camping equipment,
luggage, pictures frames, housewares, decorative items and a whole lot more.
Don't forget we are also having a bake sale and the chance to purchase a Montague Reporter coffee mug.

It is a bit early to call into the office but you can start looking in your closets, attic and garage for suitable items.
At least the Reporter is typically brought directly to the door.
The lighter the Recorder gets the farther from the house it lands. Monday's paper is on the sidewalk...Tuesday's is just outside the gate...by Saturday it might be 5 feet from the door, but certainly not on the porch like it used to be.
Just spotted this today. You have a 20 ft walk to yours and last I knew YOU could walk without crutches.. I don't do my mail daily. And if it is any of your business I do tip well. All three of my papers.
"So it will be in my mailbox ....Super nice for us handicapped folks ...."
Isn't that where the rest of your mail is? The Reporter is being mailed to you -- that's why it's in your mailbox, right? If your mailbox isn't in a convenient location, isn't that a beef with the USPS, not the Montague Reporter?
Or maybe you're figuring that whoever delivers the Reporter should swing by your mailbox on the way in and pick up the rest of your mail? If so, I hope you tip _really_ well ..... :-)
So it will be in my mailbox 1/8 of a mile away, down and up hill. Super nice for us handicapped folks who have trouble walking. Hope it doesn't take long to find a driver. At least the paper is WORTH walking after... :-)
Customers in Erving and Millers Falls that get their newspaper delivered to them will see a change for awhile. Your delivery person has moved one and the Montague Reporter is looking for a replacement. Call 863-8666 if interested in taking over.
Your paper will arrive on Fridays with your mail. Sorry for this temporary delay.
Yahoo!. I just came across the bridge myself! What a thrill!
I saw you in the office, Don, as I just got back from looking at some super video equipment with the rest of the crew, Tim, Dean, Kathy. Woo, woo!
About 3:30 pm today just 1/2 hours ago the Gill/Turners Falls Bridge was open for 2 Way Traffic
I took a camera out from MCTV and videoed the traffic, Caution 20 mph sign, and drivers hooking and waving. Both a Gill and Montague patrol car gave the thumbs up sign.
