Today is a double anniversary. One month ago today, I officially adopted my new dog, Joey. In that month, Joey has become a familiar dog about town. Five years ago today, I started my new blog, The Gossips of Rivertown. In those five years, Gossips has become a go-to source for hyperlocal news, information, and history about our beloved and quirky little city.
The anniversary of Gossips is, as always, an occasion for thanksgiving and celebration. Gratitude goes to all the readers who have made Gossips a blog to be reckoned with, but very special thanks is reserved for the readers who set their own subscription rate--anywhere from $10 to $1,000--and became "voluntary paid subscribers" to The Gossips of Rivertown and for the businesses, organizations, and events that have chosen Gossips to get their message to the community of Hudson and beyond.
Gossips invites you to join the celebration of five years of delivering news, history, commentary, and gossip about the events, machinations, and trouble right here in our own river city by adding your name to the list of 2015 Subscribers. Just click on the "Donate" button in the right column. Your support--in any amount--is enormously appreciated and keeps Gossips going.
Readers are also invited to help Joey and me celebrate today at Bruno's (227 Warren Street). We'll be there from about noon on, so come by and congratulate us. Have your lunch or get your lunch at Bruno's and enjoy a piece of Gossips' scrumptious fifth anniversary cake, from Cafe Le Perche, compliments of The Gossips of Rivertown.
Dogs get to celebrate, too! There is an equally scrumptious cake just for them, made by Shannon Kenneally of Bruno's, which Joey will be sharing with all his canine friends to celebrate finding his new home in Hudson.
