Things To Know Today
  1. With heavy rain in the weekend forecast, Andover Day has been postponed until next Saturday, Sept. 30. The event had been scheduled for tomorrow (more info).
  2. I'm trying to boost AHS sports coverage on Andover News. Later this fall, I'm hoping to put together a highlight video for the fall season. If you have video clips, photos, etc. you'd be willing to share, that would be a huge help. I'd also love to find people who attend AHS games regularly who could send me scores and 1-2 paragraph game recaps. Let me know if you can help.
  3. Andover News offers group subscriptions. If your group or company is interested in offering reduced-rate subscriptions to your members or employees, shoot me an email.
