PRACTICE MINDFULNESS IN 2024
Happy New Year Everyone! As we embark on The Showcase Magazine’s 28th year, our commitment for 2024 is to practice “Mindfulness” and to be grateful for what we have at the moment, our ongoing journey and the treasured bond with our readers and clients. As we continue championing and promoting our LOCAL community, organizations, schools, businesses, and professionals, we remain dedicated to providing quality customer service Showcasing the best of everything LOCAL.
