OB Rag Office to Open at the Green Store
The OB Rag will soon have a functioning office located inside the Green Store at 4843 B Voltaire Street. We’ll be using it for interviews, phone work, and will have access to WiFi. We also need some throw rugs and posters for our space. And sometime probably in April, we’ll have an Open House and invite everyone. So, stay tuned.
Weekly Polls on the OB Rag
If you have missed our weekly polls, join the club – I miss them too. But the widget that allowed us to post them is now so outdated that it doesn’t mesh with with our current WordPress. But Patty at our Tech Desk has assured me that we will soon have a new one. Any ideas for future polls? Send ’em in.
