It’s a Month of Anniversaries

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on July 14th, 2014

cakeI’m thinking that I should send a link of this week’s column to my husband, a kind reminder that we have a special date approaching at the end of the month.  Even though our anniversary isn’t a focus of this column, it might help him remember to keep a certain date in late July open. . .

Our wedding anniversary aside, July is a month filled with anniversaries.  Of course, as I wrote last week, PeKu just celebrated its sixth birthday.  As someone mentioned to me, we’ve left preschool and are moving onto the big world of elementary school.  That seems about right.  The company can run with a little less attention to every detail, but it still benefits from a good amount of guidance and direction.

Staying within the corporate world, we have five anniversaries among the PeKu team.  In order of length of tenure at PeKu, they are:

  • Jason Lightner- He has been writing for us since 2009, when PeKu was just an infant.  Over the past five years he has covered a number of topics, including beverages (now focusing on wine), album & artist reviews, and politics.  Jason infuses his articles with interesting references and thoughtful quotes, making them ever so engaging for the reader.
  • Eric Blake- Eric has written for PeKu for the past three years, originally writing only on political topics.  However, over the past several months, he has joined our movie review team, providing insightful comments on movies both old and new.
  • Kimberly Hays- Kim joined our team as a writer in 2012.  Since that time she has taken on the additional role of associate editor.  Kim has contributed many informative and inspirational articles in the areas of crafts, home decor, and gardening.  She also is responsible for the editing in our Active Living, Entertainment, Home & Garden, Technology, and Style sections.
  • Elizabeth Gunto- She has been writing for PeKu for the past year.  With a main focus on tv show reviews, Elizabeth has kindly guided our readers away from unworthy shows and helped them find those deserving of eyeballs.  She also writes an occasional book review for those of you who prefer the printed word.
  • Donella Crigger- Donella also has been writing for PeKu for the past year.  In her weekly writings she covers a handful of topics, including outdoors activities, pets, and book reviews.  Additionally, she writes our weekly bargain of the week column, helping our readers find the best prices on items.

Happy anniversary to all of my writers and editor!  July surely is a month of celebrations.
