"Patio Paradise Fountains"

by Joe Weinstein

Inspired by Florida's Natural Beauty

Dear Friends,

Because of the opening of my Fountain Display Garden and Studio, I am attempting to get some coverage in the local Tampa area press.

On October 13, 2005, a very nice article appeared on my work appeared in the Tampa Tribune. It is entitled: Creating a Natural Attraction. Thank you Kathy Steele. Also, thanks to my dauther, Brandy. Brandy wrote an email to the paper that prompted their article.

Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Just a simple call or email to any of the local news outlets listed below would be very helpful and deeply appreciated. The squeaky wheel is beginning to get the grease. Here is a list of local bay area television stations and newspapers. Please take a moment to call or email any of them to let them know that you think that my fountains are news worthy. If you attach my press release (below) to your email (copy and paste press release to a word file and then attach to your email) that is great, but a few personal words in the message would be even better.

Thank you, Joe Weinstein
