In this week’s paper, we’ve included our beautiful storybook on southern Lane County, The Emerald Valley Magazine. This little labor of love is full of this area’s vibe, energy and unique style. It makes me proud to help create such a lovely local magazine. As you read through the pages, please take note and support these hardworking local businesses. The Emerald Valley Magazine is all about supporting local!
Now I know you hear this “local” thing all the time, but I ask that you actually do something about it and make a conscious effort to do better about supporting Cottage Grove, Creswell and Pleasant Hill businesses. We are truly our own area and we need to retrain ourselves out of heading north all the time and keep our dollars in southern Lane County.
This southern Lane County lifestyle magazine we create is filled with business experts ready to assist you with services and products they offer. They are your local neighbors, and making a commitment to focus on our area for your daily needs is beyond important.
We at Emerald Valley Magazine will be launching our first Springfield Emerald Valley Magazine in Spring 2018, to spread that “buy local” message all around! Who knows, we may have several EV lifestyle magazines throughout Oregon in the coming years. Let us know your thoughts and story ideas, as we will be working on our next EV Magazine for southern Lane County next year.
Local supporting Local: Let’s all do it! Thank you for taking this important issue on.
