Thank you for sharing your stories
After having had the honor of writing and sharing your stories for the St. Joseph and Sartell Newsleaders for more than 10 years, it is time for me to say goodbye to my consistent stories.
Perhaps, in the future, I will write an occasional story.
I want to thank everyone who has given me the chance to help share their stories. It has been a genuine pleasure to do so.
Through these stories, I have met many wonderful people who have humbled me by their exceptional talents and commitments. I am grateful to have had the chance to help you share your stories.
I would also like to thank the writers and photographers who I have enjoyed working and collaborating with. A special “thank you” to Dennis Dalman for convincing me in the very beginning to write for the papers because he thought I would “be good at it” and to Janelle Von Pinnon for publishing all of the stories.
My goals when I began writing for the Newsleaders were to spread some cheer and good news, as well as help share news about people in need and new businesses opening in the area. It has been exciting pursuing these goals.
I am positive I will still meet many of you around town and will be delighted to once again visit with you.
