I’m very pleased to say that after only two months, we’re getting pretty content-rich here at the Town Hall!

Filtering content by category makes it easier to see the range of discussions going on because the “latest posts” list on the homepage is (1) very long and (2) includes every section.

We’re already talking development, local health and why we just plain love this place. To make a submission (and you do NOT have to be a professional writer!), click here.
