The Bruce Peninsula Press is happy to welcome Joanne Rodgers to the “Press” team as our Lion’s Head based reporter.
Many of our readers may already recognize Joanne’s name from her extensive community work with the Bruce Peninsula Environment Group.
Joanne moved to Lion’s Head six years ago with her husband and son. Her husband grew up in the area and his family has resided here for four generations. “I thoroughly enjoy living in a place of such natural beauty and strong sense of community” said Joanne.
“Last winter I enrolled in an online journalism course, coincidently the Bruce Peninsula Press posted an ad for a freelance reporter at the same time. Suddenly I had a tailor-made co-op component for my studies.”
Joanne enjoys writing about local events and activities and notes that everyone has been very supportive.
