Seeking Kannapolis newcomers, and more tidbits

Are you a newcomer to the Kannapolis area? Or, are you a Kannapolis oldtimer who’s marveling at the changes coming from the North Carolina Research Campus? I’m looking for both types of people to talk with for an upcoming article. Please e-mail me at with your contact information.


If you didn’t see it in Saturday’s paper, there’s an interesting newcomer project in the works at the Levine Museum of the New South.

They’re asking for video contributions from newcomers and non-newcomers for an upcoming exhibit and a special to air on WTVI in 2008.

You can submit short home videos, 10 minutes or less (think YouTube). Participants can talk about what it’s like to be a Charlotte-area newcomer; talk about what it’s like to deal with newcomers; show a celebration or some other tradition you do here because you did it “back home;” or show a Southern celebration or tradition that you hope newcomers will appreciate.

The museum will accept the videos (any format) at its front desk (200 E. Seventh St. in uptown) during normal museum hours. You’ll be asked to sign a release giving them permission to use the material. More questions? Call 704-333-1887, ext. 228.


And finally, here’s a link to the latest newcomer report with WCNC-TV on the many great resources available at the Levine Jewish Community Center. In addition to airing it on their Monday morning and midday shows, the Observer’s news partner WCNC has also recently decided to air our newcomer reports on their Saturday morning broadcast.

Look for our next report to help you plan New Year’s Eve activities this coming weekend.
