Things We Love…
February is the month of love. Be prepared to fall even more in love with our region.
Arts. Whether it is learning or performing, our region cultivates the appreciation of art. In this edition, you will find all the information you need to sign up for a class, appreciate the work of others or attend a live performance. In our Performances to Love feature, Connect 2 Culture is hosting live performances, including a pianist, an inspirational act to inspire children and adults to appreciate individuality and youth, and the renowned production of Pride and Prejudice. Art stimulates thought, inspires growth and feeds the soul. We love the art in our region.
Ronald McDonald House. 3,477 families. 38 states. Two foreign countries. Those numbers do not begin to quantify the impact Ronald McDonald House of the Four States has had on our communities. Their heart and reach go beyond numbers. On page 31, we honor Ronald McDonald House’s 25 years of service by sharing stories of impact by families right here at home. We love Ronald McDonald House.
Communities. The definition of community is a group of people living together with a feeling of fellowship and common attitudes, interests and goals. We have featured 18 pages and nine communities dedicated to connection, reaching others and growth. We celebrate the work, the service and the unique characteristics of each of these towns. We share their attitudes, their interests and their goals. We love our communities.
Love. It is in the air. From our Singles in the City, dating advice or love stories, we are here to warm your heart. February is all things red, pink and hearts, and these feature stories will inspire you to either take a chance on love or remind you to show that special person just how special they are to you. We love LOVE.
Advertisers. For over two decades, our advertisers have trusted us as a resource to grow their business. Our pages are filled with the best local business owners in our region. They are dedicated to us, their customer and their community, and we are dedicated to our advertisers. Let’s appreciate their dedication by supporting our local business owners as we plan dinner, buy gifts and plan events to celebrate love this month. We love our advertisers.
You. Our readers. We would not be here if not for you. Thank you for continuing to turn to us to be your go-to when celebrating the art, culture and lifestyle of our region. Keep telling us what you want to see and read each month. We love our readers.
We love the month of love. Go relish in love and be free and open with love to others. After all, is there a better time?
