It’s all about the ‘Three Cs’ communication, connecting and community

At the Pinecrest Tribune, we believe that it’s all about the community — connecting with it and communicating information about it to our residents. It’s all about the three Cs.

The Tribune has been around for more than 16 years. We were spawned when the glimmer of incorporation first began to sparkle and we were the communication voice that carried that message to the people.

We worked hard to become “The Voice of Pinecrest” and we continue to work hard to remain as that voice. We connect our local entrepreneurs to our residents, directing them to our shops, restaurants and local businesses. We help businesses communicate by using our pages to profile our business partners and tell you where to find a new restaurant or store. We encourage business owners to connect and communicate with the community by allowing them to write a column or feature story about their business or expertise.

We also regularly cover the activities and accomplishments of our young people at the schools located in and around Pinecrest. In particular, we relish communicating the sports successes of our youth, either as members of their school teams or in the various youth leagues that have programs in our community.

We enjoy communicating the accomplishments of the people in our community and our Positive People feature column, which began with our first issue, has become one of the most popular items in this newspaper.

We like to feature the activities of our churches and synagogues, too, as they represent the very fiber of our connections with each other in our Village.

We love that so many of you have connected with the community by participating in our popular “Read in …” feature and that you take a copy of this newspaper on your vacations, trips and holidays and remember to snap a picture with the paper and send it back to us. It is a small world after all.

So, thank you to all of you for allowing us to be a part of your lives. Thank you for reading the stories and columns that appear in this newspaper. Thank you for patronizing our advertisers. And thank you for connecting with your community and allowing us to communicate some of that in the Pinecrest Tribune.
