That being said I want to say thank you to Cindy and Steve Washburn for believing in my ability to do this and also to Anne-Marie Brandt for helping me set this up.
For my first blog entry I decided to interview a close friend who is also a New Cumberland resident. His name is Ed McCormick and he is 37 years old and moved into New Cumberland in February of 2011.
Christy: Why did you move to New Cumberland?
Ed: I wanted to stay in the area and I found an affordable apartment here.
Christy: What do you like about living in downtown New Cumberland?
Ed: I am close to everything and I enjoy the small town atmosphere.
Christy: Which of the local businesses do you frequent?
Ed: Coakley's, GIant, Brother's Pizza, Villa Roma Pizza & Subs and the Laundromat.
Christy: Is there anything you would like to see different in New Cumberland?
Ed: I like New Cumberland the way it is, however I would like to see more of a police presence during the morning rush on Bridge St.
Christy: Have you ever attended the annual Apple Festival?
Ed: No because last year I was helping you and Justin move into your house the very same day.
Christy: Any new types of businesses you would like to see open in New Cumberland?
Ed: I would like to see a Deli or retro type of Coffee Shop open here because I think they would do well.
Christy: What is your favorite building in New Cumberland?
Ed: That would have to be the Movie Theater. I love the fact that it looks exactly the same as it did when I was young and my Mother took me to see Raiders of the Lost Ark there.
Christy: Any other community activities you would like to see here?
Ed: I think that New Year's Eve activities would be a great addition and also if there could be a Parade to celebrate the local school teams (Red Land, Cedar Cliff) and they could gather at Giant and Parade down Bridge St.
I want to thank Ed McCormick for taking the time to let me interview him and also my Fiance Justin Bolton for encouraging me to take on this new venture.
