RCP launches Crossroads

Published 11:49 am Tuesday, October 20, 2015

AHOSKIE – It’s an old friend with a new look.

Roanoke-Chowan Publications announces that Crossroads will publish once again in February of 2016 with a new look and format, as well as a theme that begs for reader interaction.

Crossroads – a collection of articles/photos of people, places and things in the local area – has traditionally published on each Saturday in February in the Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald and each Wednesday of the same month in the Gates County Index.

That changes for 2016.

Instead of a four-week publication, Crossroads will be published once near the end of February. The format changes from a broadsheet (newspaper page size) publication to a tab-size magazine. The overall number of pages will increase.

For 2016, the news staff of Roanoke-Chowan Publications will focus on the most significant events over the course of history that has impacted the four counties (Bertie, Gates, Hertford and Northampton) within our coverage area.

Our readers can play an important role in helping us devise a final list of the most significant, life-changing events by submitting nominations. Those events can include the opening of a major business or institution that still plays a significant role today; historical events that shaped our area; and even the wrath of Mother Nature and how we were able to recover.

We’re also asking our readers to share any documentation/photos they have to help support the reason why their nomination warrants inclusion among the top most significant events in the Roanoke-Chowan area.

To submit a nomination and/or any supporting documentation, email cal.bryant@r-cnews.com or drop it off at the Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald office, located at the intersection of Catherine Creek Road and Main Street in Ahoskie. For more information, call 252-332-7207.
