17ExtraGreetings from Up & Coming Weekly, Hope Mills’ Community Newspaper.

Wow! I love the sound of that. Actually, we have been a part of the Hope Mills community since our weekly community newspaper began publishing in 1996. As a marketing company, we have never strayed from our mission and mandates of focusing on all the positive quality-of-life aspects of living in Cumberland County.

Hope Mills has always been a part of our success. Starting today, we are taking our presence in your town to a new level. More papers, more newspaper racks (look for the bright yellow boxes) and a lot more Hope Mills coverage. Yes, the Town of Hope Mills will now have its own community section in Up & Coming Weekly. Pick up a copy every week to read about Hope Mills-related news, views, people and events as well as the many other great things happening in Cumberland County. We will also be marketing, profiling and promoting local businesses and organizations.

We will be working closely with Jan Spell and the Hope Mills Chamber of Commerce to market and promote “Shop local, Shop Hope Mills” as we invite newcomers, visitors and guests into the community. We are excited and pleased to have this opportunity to tell Hope Mills’ story to everyone in the county, including Fort Bragg.

And, we want to hear from you, the residents of Hope Mills. So, send us your editorials, comments, opinions, stories and events to hopemills@upandcomingweekly.com.

In closing, I want to thank the Town of Hope Mills for its vote of confidence. Specifically, Mayor Jackie Warner, Town Manager Melissa Adams, Deputy Town Clerk Debbie Holland, the Hope Mills Board of Commissioners and Jan Spell, president of the Hope Mills Chamber. Their combined leadership, vision, dedication and commitment to excellence will give us plenty to write about in the future.
