Fundraising/Underwriting

The sewage spill last Summer was a wake up call for our town.  Since then, our government has taken steps to correct problems at the wastewater treatment plant and put it under the management of an outside company to operate and maintain the plant.  Last week on Town Matters Rick Wood toured the facility and […]

  This week on Town Matters, Rick Wood speaks with out new Town Manager Natasha Tucker to find out a bit more about her, her military service, and how she ended up working in municipal government. Next week, our talk show is Your Care Partners, where hosts Jill and Martie talk about care planning and […]

We’ve got several WWER updates for you this week. Your Care Partners is back this week.  Martie and Jill are back with more advice about caregiving.  Their new episode airs Thursday at 8PM and Saturday at 9AM.  Available online Starting Saturday at 9AM. Our studio construction has slowed, but continues to move forward.  As noted […]

Just a quick reminder that you can hear Rick Wood’s interview with Chief Les Parsons on Town Matters this week: Thursday at 8PM Saturday at 9AM Available online Saturday 9AM   We had another wonderful donation to our studio drive this week.  Robert Gray donated $1000!  Our new total is $9360.  

It’s been a good week for our studio fundraising efforts!  We had a very generous donation of $1000 and several smaller ones that add up to over $1300!  That brings us nearly halfway to our goal! In other good news, we are starting to pick back up on our talk show production.  The studio effort […]

Not a lot to report this week.  Construction has slowed as we wait on some paperwork.  Donations are still coming in, with $350 to report in the last 2  weeks.  For my birthday in March, I started a Facebook fundraiser and kicked it off with $103 of my own money.  So far, donors have kicked […]

The title for this week’s studio update is about light.  Our new window has been installed, letting daylight in.  Inside, our new lights have been installed and wired so we have light at night.  The walls and ceiling have also been painted, so it’s really starting to look like a welcoming space for our volunteers […]

The construction crew has made excellent progress this week!  The new roof was installed and had its first test Saturday night when yet another heavy rain came through Colonial Beach!  Wiring for lighting and HVAC has been installed, and the insulation and drywall are up.  It’s really starting to look like a nice place to […]

Our new door arrived and has been installed!  Looks a lot better than the old one…   And we have a big hole in the wall where our new window is going…     We hope to complete basic construction in February and start broadcasting from our new studio some time in March.  We’re already […]

Sometimes I think we don’t give enough thanks to our Underwriters.  You can also think of them as Sponsors.  They are the local businesses and organizations who have donated money to WWER to help us stay on air.  Most of them are very small and don’t have a lot of cash to spare, but still […]
