Grice Connect is growing faster than our small talented team can manage and we need your help. Do you love to write, enjoy the technical aspects of running a high traffic website or love sales? If so, we want to discuss how you might fit in at Grice Connect.

From the beginning, Grice Connect has had a vision of being more than just another news outlet. We want to be a catalyst for positivity and growth in our community. With a solutions based journalism approach we look for opportunities to make a real difference in our community.

As we have grown, we have listened to you and expanded coverage to areas that interest you most.

Obituaries and Events Calendar

Two ways we have recently expanded to meet your needs is the launching of our comprehensive obituary listings and our events calendar.

We have worked with the five local funeral homes to find a solution to sharing obituaries in one easy to access place. When a funeral home in Statesboro adds an obituary to their website, it automatically populates to Grice Connect. We now offer a comprehensive listing of daily obituaries at no cost to the families who have lost a loved one.

We have also soft launched a local, interactive events calendar which fills another popular request of our readers. Thanks to the support of the Averitt Center for the Arts and others who support Grice Connect financially, we were able to expand in this way.

You can now view local events by selecting the Events Calendar from the Grice Connect website menu. You can also submit your events to be included there as well.

We have a lot of additional ways in which we want to expand our coverage. However, to accomplish these goals we need more dedicated team members who share our community first vision.
