Caught up in our desire to share the stories of the Mid-Ohio Valley, sometimes we forget to share more about that all we do here at Clutch MOV! While our main focus is publishing regional stories, we also host a Community Calendar and offer a line of locally-focused products that is continuously expanding.

Because there are so, so many events happening in the MOV each week and we could easily spend all of our time and energy simply sharing upcoming events, we have launched a new Instagram account! Follow @live_mov to learn about upcoming events in our region. We will continue to post local content on our main feed @clutchmov and include events in our weekly email newsletters, but this will allow us to share event information more frequently throughout the week and hopefully help you stay informed. We also encourage you to join the What’s Happening in the Mid-Ohio Valley? Facebook group to find and share local events. Did you know that we have an entire product line of graphic tees (like this one), mugs, postcards and more? Well we’ve started an Instagram account to share more of our MOV-focused goods! All of our current products can be found at Wit & Whimzy in Downtown Marietta, and you’ll often find our smaller goods available for sale when we set up at local events. We continue to add new items to our line, and wanted to pull all of our items together in one place, and thus @clutchmov_gear was born. Follow along, and keep an eye out for new sweatshirts, postcards and more this fall!

There are more changes afoot, all aimed at improving your experience with Clutch MOV and bringing you more local content. We’ll keep you posted! The best way to keep up is to subscribe to our weekly email newsletter, which includes a summary of upcoming local events, recent content, updates from our staff, and of course the best photos from our social media stream. Our emails are a perfect way to add some positivity to your inbox – and you can rest assured there is an actual human (me) putting them together every week, not just an automated algorithm. Have a friend who could use some positively local content in their inbox, too? Sign ’em up!
