First, a little bit about us. All of our writers and photographers are local Geist residents, just like you. Our focus is on supporting the community of Geist by highlighting the people behind the scenes that make it a special place to live and work. It’s our firm belief that the mortar holding any community together is the non-profits and charitable organizations. Our stories will concentrate on the people who make up the diverse population found in Geist Reservoir.
For over 9 years we’ve been publishing the Geist Community Newsletter, a monthly print publication mailed free of charge to nearly 12,000 of our Geist neighbors each month. You are invited to contribute through any of our online assets including atGeist.com, TownePost.com, Twitter.com, and Facebook.com. Homeowners association news, event photos, free classified ads, home videos, garage sale notices, and even coupons can be submitted through our online websites and shared with your neighbors.
My wife and I started the atGeist.com website and Geist Community Newsletter at Geist Reservoir just over nine years ago. Like many start-up companies, my part-time job is now my full-time passion.
I’m often asked about the annexation fight against the Town of Fishers, blue-green algae in the reservoir, or a Geist pilot now in federal prison named Schrenker. While it’s good exposure to be called upon to comment on local and national news stories covered in our newsletter, I have to say, its our work with local non-profits, founding the St.Vincent Geist Half Marathon & 5K, Vines for Life Cancer Benefit, hosting local fundraisers, hosting writing contests for children, and our scholarships for volunteerism that we’d rather talk about. With all the politics and problems in the world, its refreshing to hear about the good in a community every once in awhile.
I invite you to participate in your community publication. Its your voice, your stories, your thoughts, and your neighbors we want to hear about. Our mission is to provide a platform to support the community of Geist. The best gift you can give us in return is your feedback and participation.
For those of you that would like to write for our publication, we welcome your stories and ideas.
