  • Worth All The Work

    To the Editor:

    We’re so fortunate, and so grateful, that The Newtown Bee spread the word about the August 31st Panacea and Friends Concert. Associate Editor Shannon Hicks took time to meet with us, listened patiently to our stories, and then wrote two amazing features.

    Sometimes it’s difficult to get up in front of a crowd and make sure that everyone has a good time. Panacea has been blessed; the music might not always be perfect, but seeing everyone sing along makes us wish we knew all the words, too!
