Saturday afternoon Heather Hughes, a photographer from the Daily Press newspaper, visited my workshop and took pictures for an article that they are planning about the Freedom Pen Program. I have an interview scheduled for Tuesday at the Daily Press office in Newport News.

I don't know when the article will run or how many pictures will be used, Heather took pictures of me and my oldest daughter turning pens and drilling blanks.

I should thank Margaret Yancey of the Christopher Newport University Public Relations Office for her help. Ms Yancey made the contact with the newspaper and a local television station.

Media coverage is important to our program as it gets the word out and helps us to attract new sources of funding. Over the coming months we will need thousands of pen kits for our turners making pens.

I will post updates to this thread as information is available. Sorry, Heather couldn't leave me any pictures as it is against the newspapers policy.
