Monica Marshall, our advertising manager, is leaving the paper after this week’s issue. She has been our ad manager for the past three years and before that did a similar stint for us between 2002 and 2005. She is leaving to become the managing director of the Mahana Magic Foundation, a nonprofit based in Burlington, whose mission is to offer support to children coping with the fear and anxiety of having parents or loved ones with cancer.
All of us at The News have been impressed with Monica’s steadfast dedication to the well-being of the paper and her hard work—and good humor—in helping us put it out every two weeks. We wish her the very best in her new endeavor.
Over the next month or so, while we search for a new ad manager, managing editor Anna Cyr will continue to work with our advertisers. She can be reached via email.
We can’t do this without you.
