We are really excited about the exposure for the program and appreciative of the Herald for taking an interest.
I can say in hindsight that it was not the best day for the paper to show up. It was the last week and the parents were arriving soon for our end of program presentation (so that had me slightly stressed). Plus we had a coach that was unable to make it due to a work conflict. So like I said, not the best day for something extra.
So I did the best I could to work with the kids while answering the media's questions. It occurs to me (again in hindsight) that I am not very good at this sort of thing (and need to get better). I work in development at a software company so talking to the media is not in my immediate wheelhouse (so to speak).
After reading the article I thought it was good. The quotes from the kids were the best part. I am also glad they mentioned our sponsors (though not all of them) ...the sponsors have meant so much to the program. I wish I could have conveyed more how much Papa Wheelies has helped this program.
Again, all in all, really happy that we made the paper. Thanks to Principal Callahan for getting the attention of Seacoast Media Group.
