For the past few years it has been an absolute privilege to serve as editor of this cherished magazine. In this role, I’ve had the opportunity to engage with a talented staff of publishers, writers, artists, photographers, designers and creatives. Together we have brainstormed, collaborated and produced what we feel is a valuable service and resource for families in the area. It’s an understatement to say how grateful I am for everyone’s minds, their time and their gusto. I’ve learned that a significant amount of hard work goes into publishing a magazine. We have done this work outside of...
