This month we pass the one-year mark for SW Lake Lifestyle magazine. It’s the time of year to celebrate, and we are reveling in all that our publication has to be thankful for:

Our community – Each month, you inspire us to tell the stories of our great cities. Our amazing friends, neighbors, businesses, community leaders, and innumerable organizations that make up our home are at the heart of what this magazine is all about.

Our readers – The energy and enthusiasm our readers have shown for SW Lake Lifestyle fuels our passion for producing it. Thank you for the time you give to reading our publication, and for keeping us on your coffee tables and counters.

Our advertisers – Our advertising partners make this magazine possible. Without their trust in me and my team, we would not be able to deliver this beautiful piece to you. Please, shop small… shop local.

Our parent company, Lifestyle Publications – They do a fantastic job designing ads, laying out the magazine and delivering such a wonderful final product. I could not have asked for a better company to work with.

Our editor, Wendy Willison –Wendy’s professionalism and recognition of a good story ensure that each issue offers valuable, meaningful content coordinated with finesse and local flair.

And most importantly, I’d like to thank my beautiful wife, Jeanie. She has supported me in more ways than I can count.

We look forward to the continued privilege of sharing the stories of our communities for 2016!

See you around town,

Peter Fetzer, Publisher
