From the Editor

joannbwDear Readers,

As we begin the new year and our 21st year of operations I take this opportunity to reflect and count my blessings.

First and foremost, we are truly blessed to have a talented and wonderful team of individuals who consistently construct; produce and meet deadlines for this newspaper LCW–The Women’s Journal!

These talented individuals include graphic designer Kelly Forbes; copy editor and proofreader Jeff Ruth; writer Susan C. Beam; website manager Leslie B. Ocko; FaceBook and logistics manager Lucy Latham; delivery coordinator Alissa Eddinger; and bookkeeper Kathy Roth.

This core group of extraordinary individuals have kept us focused and motivated year after year. They are responsible for our successful completion of 20+ years of operations and I cannot thank them enough.

Second, and equally important, we thank and appreciation YOU, our readers; our awesome contributors; and our advertisers. Without you we would not have survived 20+ years!

Especially during life’s tougher times your continued support and encouragement has sustained us. With you by our side, we expect the coming years will continue to be full of joy as we do what we love best.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Upcoming events inside this issue include the Lancaster School of Cosmetology’s Color Me Red Special Event, Saturday, Feb. 1, 9–4 p.m. This event supports the American Heart Association with all services discounted a hefty 50%.

Mark your calendar for Lancaster’s 6th Annual Roots and Blues Festival taking place February 22, 23, and 24. Headlining events will take place at venues all over downtown Lancaster. And on January 31, The Simon & Garfunkle Story is coming to The American Music Theatre for one night only! And last but not least, the Jesuit Center’s “New Creation” Opus One: ECHO Concert takes place on January 27.

Remember to pray for our troops in these turbulent times. Freedom is not free and their sacrifice ensures that we live free in our beautiful country.

We are blessed by their sacrifice and sincerely thank them for their service.

With prayers and blessings for a safe and happy new year!

JoAnn Notargiacomo
