Live Locally. . .

September is a My Out & About favorite as we get Back to Learning! Our columns and calendars are bursting to inspire you to try something new, find a hobby, meet new friends, teach a skill to others, or give your time where you think it counts most.

I have loved learning the world of local publishing with a new friend. Sally Howe is a great editor, loves to debate words and best of all she reminds me daily of the importance of local publications in our communities. She has been a great mentor, a good friend, and her enthusiasm never ceases to amaze and inspire me.

So this month let our writers dazzle your imagination and our calendars invite you to explore everything from playing a piano in the great outdoors to trying some delicious farm or food events.

We welcome a new home design and running writer this month, Erin Loftin who is known to her clients for working in home design and remodeling, but her passion is running and she did a great job fitting right in to this month’s theme!

In a perfect fit, we are joining with our Santa Clara County Parks folks this month in promoting the Parks for Life Challenge. This special project is designed to get us out, as well as socially and physically fit with our beautiful county parks as a backdrop. I hope every one of our readers will take the challenge, take a photo and send it to My Out & About. And whatever you do always – Live Locally!
