I launched “06880” in March of 2009. Ever since, it’s been a one-man band.
Sure, I use the editorial “we.” But “06880” has always been “me.”
Now, it’s “us.”
06880 Inc. has been registered with the State of Connecticut. I — I mean, we — are now an official non-profit organization.
I’ve got a board of directors to advise me, and keep me in line. Together, we can:
- Host events. We’ve started already, with this Saturday’s Holiday Stroll. See you downtown, from 4 to 7 p.m.!
- Develop community-wide educational, entertainment and inspirational programs.
- Hire help, like interns and perhaps a staff photographer.
- Support worthy causes.
I — I mean, we — pledge that the content of “06880” will not change. If anything, the bonds that connect this physical place and our online community will be tighter than ever.
The sky’s the limit. Yet “06880” will still be grounded, right here in the real 06880.
PS: We’ve applied for tax-exempt status. When the IRS says “great!”, all contributions will be tax-deductible. And if your company has a matching grant program, you can then add us to the list.
