Publisher’s Note : MARCH 2015

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and welcome to another issue of Spotlight Magazine!

StPatricksDayHappyI’m pleased to say that over the last few months, we have been receiving letters and even the occasional phone call thanking us for providing a positive and informative publication. What joy it brings to me when I receive these words of encouragement, and to know that our magazine is truly making a difference in our community.

Just the other day, I received a letter in the mail from a woman who has been reading Spotlight for quite some time. She said that she remembered me and my family from back in the 60s when we lived in Melbourne just off Babcock Street, near the railroad tracks. When she mentioned her family’s name, I did indeed remember that she lived in the house right behind ours. Wow! It had been over forty years.  Who would have thought that the magazine I published today would be connecting us again?  I will be writing back to her, and I hope that maybe we can get together for a cup of coffee. How great it would be to share some stories from the bygone days of our childhood and to catch up on what we’d been up to all these years.

Spotlight Magazine is very active in the Social Media of today, in platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  But our original print version of the magazine is still a strong and powerful media tool as well, as evidenced in the story above.

Until next time, see you in print or on the web!
