Publisher’s Message

Bee Boppin’ Around…

July was the most exciting month we’ve had at Out & About Magazine since I stepped in as publisher. We published and distributed our first Visitors Guide and landed a spot at the San Jose Airport through Certified Folder, where it will be available in both terminals and the car rental facility. We’re starting a contest to see how far and wide the Visitor’s Guide can travel. If you have guests from out of town or relatives far away ask them to send in a picture of them with the Visitors Guide and we will post it online on our website and will have a contest on the farthest the guide can travel. You can pick up the guide at a your local chamber, visitors centers or any of the businesses that advertised in the guide and, of course, you can always stop by the office and pick up a Guide or the monthly magazine. You can view the digital edition online at our website

Since this is back to school month we are bringing back Teachers We Love and would like to hear from our readers about a teacher you love and why they deserve this award. I come from a family of teachers and know they are underappreciated so when we hear of those that go above and beyond we want to recognize their good work and share your story. The chosen teacher receives a certificate from the magazine and a nice gift.

We are always looking for new places to leave the magazine for readers to pick up. If you have a business and would like to distribute our magazine give us a call. As always, our digital edition is available online every month and a few readers have their copy mailed to them.

This month is full of music events and I plan to attend as many as possible and hopefully can get out to the theater for On the Flight Path at Pintello Comedy Theater, Love Letters at Limelight Actors Theater and Oliver at South Valley Civic Theater. Hope to see you out there enjoying the great entertainment we are so lucky to have here in Out & About Country.
