“New Us.” Pat Bradford at tekMountain. Our circa 2001 wooden table was in the give-a-
way pile when we realized its significance. This table represents the end of an era for
Wrightsville Beach Magazine. The last 17 months, since Hurricane Florence, have brought
great changes to the way we create for our readers. No longer do we spend long hours
gathered round this wooden table, as we did for close to two decades. Now we video
conference and chat and work remotely with documents in real time. We come together
weekly to collaborate, rather than in daily sessions. We have a fabulous new website in
the works and fresh, new story ideas for the years to come.
