One new local initiative worth checking out is the Hello Harrisonburg podcast series. It's a great way to hear about what is motivating to residents of Rocktown, and what the featured presenters are doing to change our little corner of the world for better. Series so far include Innovation and Economic Development, Sustainability, and Reducing Recidivism. If you find yourself with some time to spare, I highly recommend plugging in and listening for a while. Plus, you may hear yours truly at some point (spoiler alert!).
While I know that the Good & Gracious Co. community encompasses something much larger than Harrisonburg, VA, I am proud of how much good stuff happens here. I know I'm not unique in feeling proud about the good stuff in my neck of the woods. I would love to feature more of the local good, but I need for you all to help get me in the loop. That said, one truth that I'm sure of is that good happens everywhere. So, regardless of where you reside - Virginia, Iceland, or Timbuktu - if you've heard of something awesome, then you should let me know! There's even a handy-dandy form already on the website to make it easy for you to share your good news. You can also post it on our Facebook page, using the hashtag #goodnews. I look forward to hearing from you!
