- Carla Manzi, firstname.lastname@example.org

Carla is a real estate broker and daughter of Jim and
Theresa Manzi. Jim Manzi is one of the unofficial historians of the town
with an exhaustive collection of artifacts, documents, photographs and
postcards of the early years of the town.
- Chad Pepin,
Creative, imaginative, patient, generous, talented,
hardworking, honest - no he's not a Boy Scout - he's Chad Pepin our Web
master and all around technology wizard. Having been blessed w/artistic
ability AND technological savvy, Chad has been producing art since he
was old enough to put crayon to paper. He has progressed to graphic artist
to graphic designer to marketing and advertising specialist for an international
corporation. His link to oldewebster.com is his sincere interest in his
hometown and its colorful history. While living in Belgium several years
ago, he went to the web to look up his hometown to share with his co-workers.
The lack of any internet presence for the Town of Webster was disappointing.
Upon his return to the US and Webster, Chad remained as a consultant for
the Belgium company. In due time, his creative juices in high gear, he
hung out his own shingle "Indigrafix".
In a series of "timing is everything" events, Chad has now located
his office at 154 Thompson Road, "the center of our universe"
where he frequents the real estate office owned by Herman F. Becker and
managed by Carla Manzi.
As the story continues, Chad and Carla
share more than early years at the Webster Public Library. Conversations
revealed a shared interest in preserving and publishing the early history
of the town as well as an appreciation for the conversations and reminiscing
of our older citizens. A web site would be a perfect venue for this idea
as well as encouraging others to share the memories of their youth. Through
the generosity of Jim Manzi, former Times editor and present T & G
columnist Ed Patenaude, the editing skills of Carla and the web genius
oldewebster.com is now a reality.
