[I] Just wanted to thank you for your great event [Sunday] in the park [the Ice Cream Social]. I enjoyed talking with your staff I already knew and meeting some I knew by voice and name only; it was great to be able to put faces and names together. It was a wonderful community gathering and fun to mingle with so many folks who all love and support WHQR. And the ice cream was fabulous. Can't wait for next year! Thanks again for a wonderful event and for all you do to make WHQR the wonderful station that it is.

This has been quite a week at WHQR. For about four days, we were plagued with network outages and slowdowns that disrupted everything from recording network shows to seeing web pages to answering emails. It’s frustrating when someone sends you a message asking “What’s wrong?” and we can’t even reply to tell them. Thank goodness for Facebook and Twitter.
