Spring, Here’s to New Beginnings

Spring, Here’s to New Beginnings

Meredith“Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is” ~ Jessica Harrelson

Spring is a season we all look forward to as it brings new life and a fresh start for the New Year.  Tulips abound, birds sing, and the warmth of the Spring sunshine gives us all a sense of renewal and optimism!

I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the effort to tell the stories of the residents, businesses and community leaders of Lake Cities – and everything else that makes this community unique and amazing. When I learned of this opportunity, I set out to meet everyone I could, and not just learn what makes this community thrive, but live it!

I discovered a community with strength and resiliency.

I met wonderful people like Rick Troutman with the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Texas, Trenna Ezzell with Northstar Bank, school district officials – past and present – and volunteers who tirelessly push the efforts of the Lake Cities Chamber Of Commerce.

It is because of those people that I have learned the personality of the Lake Cities and what makes it so wonderfully distinctive. 

Let’s face it, the idea of four small cities that come under one umbrella to be known as “Lake Cities” can perplex people unless they live here.  My goal was to understand and depict this fascination so that we could promote community bonding and strengthening while growing Lake Cities into the bright future that lies ahead.

I am confident we are on that forward path.

Just a little about me: I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and a proud mother of two.  Anyone that knows me knows that my children are two of my favorite people and my biggest achievements in life (so far). 

My daughter, Caroline, recently graduated from The King’s College in NYC and my son, Andrew, studies Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.  

As they were growing up, I chose to stay home with them and eventually decided to home educate them.  Now that they are springing forward in their own adult lives, I am able to focus on a fresh new season in my life. 

I feel honored and privileged to serve as the Community Editor of this new publication. I believe the parallel of my personal Spring season and embarking on this Lake Cities endeavor is what fuels my enthusiasm to bring the community of Lake Cities to life through this new publication!

I want to especially thank Scott and Kelly Murray for having confidence in me to give me this amazing opportunity.  Jana Melton, our managing editor that makes my job easier because she is so excellent and talented in her job. Our gifted art department, my dear co-workers, and Steve Gamel with Edit This along with the members of the Lake Cities Chamber of Commerce that took me in and guided me. 

They all consistently encouraged me throughout the launch of this project, and for that, I am grateful. 

So welcome everyone to Lake Cities Living, a community magazine.  As Community Editor,

I am here to tell the stories and share the beauty of the Lake Cities businesses, community organizations, schools, churches and residents.

I look forward to meeting more of you!
