This month’s issue is bittersweet because it will be my last as editor in chief. I’ve spent the last four years learning more about our community, and my experience has enriched me as a local citizen and as a publishing professional. As I move on professionally, know that I leave the magazine in the capable hands
of our next editor in chief, Katherine Gotthardt.
Our March cover story by Marianne Weaver introduces you to our Influential Women. “Prince William Living’s Most Influential Women 2019” by Marianne Weaver highlights impressive local women.
Writer Helena Tavares Kennedy takes over this month’s Giving Back and profiles a worthy nonprofit. “Community Connections: Volunteer Prince William Makes a Difference” delves into what the non-profit does for the local community and offers you ideas on how to volunteer.
This month’s Destinations shows us how to take advantage of the plentiful parks that Prince William hosts. “Discover Something New at a Local Park” by Carla Chistiano discusses many ways that residents can enjoy nature.
In this month’s Family Fun, Jennifer Halter helps families spring forward by offering up “4 Activities that Help Your Family ‘Spring Forward.’”
It has been a pleasure to serve you and this magazine. If I had to make the decision again to join the Prince William Living team, I would. One of my favorite movies is “The Sound of Music.” I am not sure if it’s the story, the actors, or the music that makes me watch it over and over again. So, in the immortal words of
Rogers and Hammerstein, “So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night. I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.”
