NBCC Ribbon Cutting at The Brunswick Beacon

The Brunswick Beacon recently joined the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce. That always calls for a ribbon-cutting.

Here's the view of the front desk.

Ever wonder how the modern newspaper printing process works? Here's my simplified version:
Once all the content including ads are written, designed, and assembled, they're fed to the printing line via this big box-y looking computer.

The press run starts here.

And it comes out here! (With help from 6 people who make sure all it all runs smoothly.)

Next the inserts are added to the printed papers. Here's the stuffing line (I don't know what they call it, but you get the idea).

And that's what happens before the papers are put on trucks and taken wherever they're going.

Dana Fisher with Brunswick Beacon Publisher Scott Harrell - we always bring big scissors, but they had even larger ones. So now we have scissor envy. (Ooops, I forgot - Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's scissors.)

A line up of mostly North Brunswick Chamber folks who turned out for the ribbon-cutting. Rick Paxton James Shoemaker, Kerry Kasotsky, Monica Clark, Dana Fisher, Nick Arbia, Lee Ann Mitchell Bolton, Dave Seaton, Michael Triggiano, Frank Williams, Julie LaMay, and Brunswick Beacon Publisher Scott Harrell.

Getting ready to cut the ribbon.

After the cut they get to keep the piece of ribbon. (Not sure what they do with it, maybe use it in beauty contests?)

And here it is, in the air, another successful ribbon-cutting. 

Welcome to the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, we're proud to have you as members.
