This month brings with it a beautiful change of scenery in SW Lake County as the peak of fall color occurs mid-October. The shorter days lead to cooler evenings and the crisp fall air makes outdoor activities even more enjoyable. The celebration of autumn is everywhere as our schedules fill-up with football games and apple-picking fun… Halloween plans are made and costumes finalized… and the pumpkin and its pumpkin-flavor become as ubiquitous as Starbucks.

The feeling of change and celebration is here at SW Lake Lifestyle as well. You may have noticed we’ve grown a bit since our first issue and we’d like to thank our many friends and sponsors from the community that made this growth possible. Your continued support of local businesses and area events is a true example of celebrating community. SW Lake Lifestyle will continue to do the same as we endeavor to bring interesting, new and pertinent content in our celebration of our community. We look forward to your suggestions for upcoming issues. Please continue to share your thoughts and story ideas about your school, church and group’s events in our community—it is our pleasure to join in your stories and celebrations.

Have a wonderful month!

One of my favorite ways to celebrate the season is to spend the day with my family as we explore a pumpkin farm, get lost in a corn maze or go apple-picking… With so many great activities to do this month in SW Lake, where will you start?
