Two notable events, PAW has no report or pictures.

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 29, 2014

This weekend had the airport open day and the sneak preview of the Mitchell Park library. The Weekly has not advertised either and there has been no report or photographs from a reporter at either event.

Any explanation?

Indeed a miss! I have volunteered at the airport day before (this year had to skip a visit as I was at the Salinas Air Show) and this is a good local event.

The airport and the Mitchell Park Library are disorganized then because I would think the Weekly doesn't chase down the hundreds of events that appear on the Community Calendar. They are submitted?

I have seen banners about airport day all over town.

Anyway, I'm sure there will be some pictures eventually and if you really care so much, and know it's a tradition, you could have looked out for it sooner.

Another - not the point. This is a local newspaper. I would expect to see local events covered. Yes, I could have attended these events, but not all of us are available to saunter around town at the weekend as other pressing events often have to take priority. Therefore it makes sense to find out how they went from the local newspaper.

There was an advertisement in the Weekly paper edition about the Mitchel Park Preview - ad had in big letters "COME TOGETHER", and in small letters "A concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles invasion with a sneak peak of the New Mitchell Park library and community center" - this appeared in the September 19, and I believe the September 26 editions.

I think that the Chief PR Hack that the city hired, should have issued a press release, or talked to the Weekly to at least get an article write up to generate interest, as well as have used some social media sites.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
