0001-Hello-from-AmandaWhen my husband, Kevin, first mentioned the idea of purchasing Ossekeag Publishing in August 2016, although I was excited at the opportunity, I thought it would be another one of our daydreams. After all, Kevin already had two businesses to run and I work full-time as a legal assistant in Saint John. But we kept talking about how interesting the idea was and started making plans.

 We’re both proud to be Kings County babies, Kevin growing up in Pearsonville (located about 20 minutes outside of Sussex) while I am a “city girl”, hailing from Sussex.  Kevin grew up with the Hampton Herald, and I can’t remember a time when I didn’t check through the Sussex Herald to see the latest pictures, or browse the ads and community events. The idea of not having that magazine arrive was simply unfathomable.

 Now here we are, five months and four publications later, getting ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Kevin is content to provide tech support, as he will continue operating Kings County Computer Repair and The Water Spout, while I will soon be leaving the world of legal research and crazy forms to join the office staff in Hampton. I’m looking forward to being involved with such an integral part of the community.

 Kevin and I are both excited for this new opportunity and look forward to learning more about the business and people involved. So we want to hear from you. Let us know what you would like to see, what your thoughts and ideas are, and how we can best meet your needs.

 Looking forward to meeting and growing with you, Amanda Crealock (amanda@ossekeag.ca), Kevin Crealock (kevin@ossekeag.ca).
