Since mailing our first issue in August 1999, our goal has always been to create and foster community spirit. We love connecting people through what we do, and highlighting the positive people, places and things that make our Southwest Florida home so special. Inside each issue you will find a mix of educational and informational columns contributed by advertisers and members of our community, including activities and charitable events. Each month we feature a person, place or business making a difference in Southwest Florida. So whether you are looking for something fun to do with your family, in search of a new recipe to try on your best friend, or discovering businesses you can support, we are thrilled to be part of your life and a trusted resource for the community!
