As summer arrives, we can look forward to some time off to relax and spend with friends and family. Personally, I always look forward to my annual trip to Minnesota, where I spend my days enjoying all that lake living has to offer… fishing on crisp, early mornings with my dad and sunny afternoons on the dock by the water with a cool beverage in hand. In this summer issue, we provide you with valuable information to guide you through the season. Read all about it in Donna’s editor’s note.
For those who may not be aware, we bring HOME to life with “The HOME Show” every Saturday at 9 a.m. on WLNI 105.9. (It also repeats Sundays at noon). Piedmont Floor Show, a long-time HOME advertiser is now our presenting sponsor, and I’m excited to deepen our partnership with Charles Snider, Chase Dewitt and Ed Roakes. You’ll be hearing much more from them about the latest in flooring, cabinetry and bathroom trends, along with tips for installation and design in the coming months so please tune in!
Our nonprofit spotlight this issue features Beacon of Hope whose mission is “to inspire Lynchburg’s youth to pursue post-secondary education or training, invest in their potential, and equip them to become contributing individuals to the betterment of our community.” Learn more about Beacon of Hope on pages 58-59.
As always, I would love to hear your feedback and ideas on future stories, showcase homes and the magazine. Thank you for reading!
