Welcome everyone to the Holiday Showcase Magazine! As we near this festive time of year, I can’t help but think about saying goodbye to one more decade and anticipating the new decade ahead! During this special time of year, we are often reminded of the countless blessings in our lives and people we love, while reflecting on events throughout the year. As we look forward to the holidays and 2020, please enjoy our holiday issue starting with our adorable cover “Let It Glow” by artist Michael Humphries.
As always, you will find your favorite columns, features and articles, as well as new and returning LOCAL advertisers. Looking for some holiday family fun? This issue Showcases many with the Family Fun Holiday Calendar, The Warren Holiday Walk, Berkeley Heights Winter Walk, On the Record in NYC, By the Exits, and check out the Community Chatter for more holiday happenings. Be sure to take advantage of all the LOCAL holiday events this season!
For the perfect holiday gift, just go to the Showcase Holiday Dining & Shopping Section or our Health & Beauty Section for a great selection of LOCAL restaurants, retailers, salons and don’t forget, gift cards make great stocking stuffers!
We all know that the best and most rewarding gift of all is the one we give ourselves when we help those in need. This issue features several charities and organizations that could use your help. Be sure to read the Giving Back column, Showcasing three charities, our Community Chatter pages and Spotlight On – The Rotary Club of Watchung – Warren.
Showcase Salutes are featured in every issue highlighting LOCAL businesses. For this issue, we have Showcased four advertisers: Kitchen Expo, Martinsville Tavern, Somerset Hills Memorial Park Cemetery & Mausoleum, and Szechuan Delight Chinese Restaurant, so be sure to read all about these businesses and their success stories!
