The Publisher’s Perspective

We have so much going on in our August issue, that I can hardly wait to get this one on the stands! Speaking of stands… we just got a shipment of outdoor racks, and while we have several promised out, we have more… If you know of a perfect spot for one of these, please email, text or call and we’ll make it happen., 336.749.1947.

OK, Lake Norman, let’s step up and show some love to some very special kids in our community. ‘Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate!’ This quote couldn’t be more spot on. One of their biggest fundraisers for Catawba Valley Guardian ad Litem Association is coming up on September 20th at Novel Taproom in Newton, who doesn’t LOVE Casino Night? This popular event always sells out quickly, so grab your tickets now. If you aren’t available that night, please consider a donation or even sponsor a table! You’ll find many other opportunities and more about what they do on page 66.

Stop by this month to congratulate Scott Gilleland, Hope and The Untouchables team on their 40th Anniversary! This is a restaurant our family frequented when our kids were growing up , when we would visit friends at the lake before we retired here, they LOVED it then and LOVE it now! If you haven’t visited lately, stop by, or drive through and congratulate them on this incredible milestone! See their story on page 60.

I’m betting many of you have heard of Patty Korn, from Denver, NC. If not, she is a jewel and ONE-OF-A-KIND volunteer. What a treasure she and many other volunteers are to this community. Check out her story “Keep Lincoln County Beautiful.” Meet the special lady who launched this journey, on page 36.

Congratulations to Sherrie Anderson, Mrs. Lake Norman, she is an amazing woman and mother of nine (yes, nine) children. You’ll love reading her story on page 52.

A BIG shout out to Andrews Mowing and Landscaping, who happens to be on our cover this month! They are currently in the middle of building our dream patio/fire pit, and we couldn’t be happier! Check out their story starting on page 28.

This is all just a drop in the bucket! We have so much going on in this issue and couldn’t be more excited about the months ahead!

All my best,
