About 40 of these are mailed to subscribers. The rest are available, free of charge, at most Greentown businesses by the first of each month. We are extremely appreciative of our advertisers and hope readers will patronize them. That was one reason we founded the Grapevine - to bring to the public's consciousness the presence of Greentown area businesses. There will always be a special spot in our hearts for the first two businesses to respond to the call for advertisers - Eastern Realty and the Sawdust Shop. It is our hope that readers are en joying the newspaper and are finding it useful to inform of future and past events and accomplishments.
