Big Hit: Civic Association 75th-Year Multimedia History Project

We completed the 75 Year Anniversary History multimedia project at the Palm Beach Civic Association and showed it at the association’s Annual Meeting at the Flagler Museum in the Town of Palm Beach.

It was a big hit and continues to get rave reviews!  In fact it’s the #1 viewed article/video with over 17,000 views on Facebook and the Civic Association website and Palm Beach TV.  In a town with only 10,000 residents that’s a great view rate!

I’m the Director of Communication for the Civic Association and writer and producer on the project; but, nothing great in media comes from a single person. See the video and credits below.

Video News Taking Over Social Media

At the Palm Beach Civic Association, where I’m the Communications Director, I started writing and producing a weekly news broadcast about the Town of Palm Beach.

Because of social media, it has become wildly successful.  We’re getting over 12,000 views a week.  That’s right, an island town with only 7,300 physical addresses and 5,800 registered voters, is getting more views than the population of the town.  Here’s a sample:
