Civitas Media, the parent company of the Washington C.H. Record-Herald/Shopper’s Guide, is committed to serving its communities and providing relevant news and information through multiple channels. With this in mind, on Feb. 24, Civitas Media launched MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse.com, an interactive community website in Washington C.H. and Fayette County.
The site features hyper-local news and information generated by community residents about area happenings and events. The new MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse.com website allows readers, schools, community organizations, local governments and others to post their favorite photographs, such as vacation or sports photos; share upcoming events, such as Scout meetings and bake sales; and even write their own blog.
The Fayette County Travel & Tourism Bureau and Fayette County Memorial Hospital have stepped forward to sponsor the MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse.com and help make this new interactive website available to the community.
“The MyOwn Community website is based on the town square, or public square, concept,” said Michael Bush, Civitas Media’s President and CEO. “As an amateur historian, I am intrigued by how communities were influenced by the interaction that took place in the town square, or community center, and how important that type of interaction still is today.”
The MyOwn website is a community-specific news, information and engagement platform driven by the most important individuals in Washington C.H. and Fayette County, its citizens. “The MyOwn sites can revolutionize the way neighbors connect with each other and their communities,” Bush said.
“With today’s busy lifestyles it has become more and more difficult for individuals and families to easily maintain the level of daily interaction that keeps a community vibrant. As the leading source of news and information, we felt we should find a solution to keep community members involved, informed and active,” said Ryan Carter, Content Manager of the Record-Herald.
The MyOwn website is an innovative way to find out about, and participate in, what’s going on near you. The site has been built so that you have plenty of opportunity to share photos, videos and stories, as well as play online games, post upcoming events or just see what your neighbors are doing.
“The MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse website is the solution the community has been looking for,” Carter said. “The MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse site will strengthen our community and improve the lives of its residents, but we can’t do it without everyone’s support.”
Washington C.H.’s MyOwn website is now available at MyOwnWashingtonCourtHouse.com. Log in today and see where community comes together.
