Publisher's Showcase

Happy New Year everyone! As I sit here thinking about writing February’s Publisher’s Showcase, I realize how lucky we are to live in a community that is so supportive of LOCAL organizations, our schools and businesses.

We begin the new year with the February issue full of your favorite columns, features and articles as well as new and returning advertisers. Inside, you will find LOCAL shops, boutiques and restaurants, as well as a variety of many LOCAL businesses and professionals. Use this issue as your winter guide to all your Valentine’s Day and holiday needs as you keep in mind to support LOCAL businesses and SHOP LOCAL!

The Showcase’s Dining & Shopping and Health & Beauty Sections are filled with businesses ready to help you plan that perfect Valentine’s Day and weekend! We feature LOCAL restaurants, boutiques, retailers, salons, spas and much more to help you plan a day for that “special someone!”

Here at The Showcase Magazine, we devote ourselves to celebrating our community and promoting our LOCAL businesses. Community and businesses come together in this issue and you will find extraordinary people and companies offering hot deals in this cold weather.

The February front cover Showcases “Red Barn,” a painting by Westfield resident Linnea W. Rhodes. This painting conjures up snowy winter visions of LOCAL landmarks past and present and images of winter fun!

We have Showcased 5 advertisers with Showcase Salutes; please take the time to read all about these businesses and their success stories. Featured salutes include The Center for Intrapersonal Wellness, The Chelsea at Warren, Johnson Fitness & Wellness, Pamela Anevski Law Office and Warren Smile Center. On page 28, you can enjoy the Winter Word Find and have a chance at winning a $25 gift card to The Jewelry Store at Martinsville. Just solve it, fax it in and it’s that easy to win!

On a recent girls’ trip, my friend and I chose to stay in Ka’anapali so that we could be close Lahaina, a historic fishing village with quaint shops and restaurants. Having come off a week of touring around O`ahu and driving everywhere...

Simply Entertaining: Themed Movie Night In

I don’t know about you, but the freezing temperatures and crazy wind chill has made it very difficult for me to want to leave my house.

That’s why I’m suggesting a movie party for this winter’s event. You can have one, you can have seven, but either way, you can be social from the comfort of your warm, cozy home.
