“I look forward to the always-prompt delivery of the next edition to my mailbox, and to receiving the email alerting me to its availability! I so appreciate that there remains a local community paper at a time when so many others have ceased publication. It’s been a great introduction to the North End!”

“Acting as Treasurer on the Board of Directors for The North End Breezes, I have had the opportunity to be part of this vibrant, local newspaper. I will definitely miss the North End!”

Marie Mushing, People In Connection

“As an advertiser with the NEB, I am pleased to be supporting and involved with this community newspaper. In the past 10 months my ad has generated new clients and I am very pleased that people are using local business owners.”

“Being a part of the North End Breezes board for the past two years has been a privilege. The team does amazing work within the community and serves as a resource hub for all. They are committed, and most importantly, passionate about preserving the North End’s legacy, while also continuing to foster its growth. Whether you are new to the area, or a longtime resident, I encourage you to volunteer with the Breezes in some capacity if you’re able. This team is small but mighty and they are always looking for more support. I’m grateful for the relationships and community I’ve been able to build while serving on the board.
I’ll be joining Welcome Inn as the Executive Director and look forward to taking on a new role in the North End Community while staying connected to The Breezes. “

The History of Christmas Windows

By Kathryn Smith I remember Eaton’s Windows…  The windows, like the famous department store, are mere memories now, but for those of us who lived through that era, we have many fond recollections of going window gazing during the Christmas season. It was Macy’s...
