From the Heart: September

Happy 10th birthday to our sister publication, Forsyth Woman magazine! Doesn’t seem possible, but yes, you are ten years in the making and what a ten years it’s been! While Forsyth Family has only been around for the last eight years, I’ve watched you from the start. You’ve blossomed into a beautiful community resource that women and men who dare to admit it look forward to each month. There are so many wonderful things about doing the job we do, but having folks approach you as you put the new issue in the stands each month with great anticipation is like getting a big warm hug. You like us, you really like us!

Publisher Keela Johnson is like the sister I never had, and besides being an amazing friend that gave me the opportunity of a lifetime (publishing Forsyth Family magazine), she’s also been a wonderful mentor. I’ve never met anyone with more drive and passion. Have a cause? Get Keela on your side and amazing things will happen! So Keela, I celebrate your success with the magazines and thank you for allowing me on this journey. Can’t wait to see what the next 10 years has to offer!

Our September issue features Truliant Federal Credit Union and their amazing spirit and support of volunteerism. We are proud to have you as our back cover advertiser each month and commend you for giving so much back to our wonderful community! Besides a lot of amazing articles and events covered this month, be sure to check out the article on the new Ryan Wood Amphitheater on pg. 22. My late nephew was surely blessed with some incredible friends in his short life. Kudos to James Gardner and his family and the donors and volunteers too numerous to mention that made this project a reality. At the dedication, it was quite humbling to hear my sister-in-law, Caroline, and the many other parents of children represented—those who have gone from us too soon—speak of their loss. I know this will become a special place for our community to gather and, hopefully, a place of comfort for the families of those honored there.
