Bee Boppin’ Around…

Happy December Readers! It has been such an amazing year for Out & About that I want to thank, not only our advertisers for making our fabulous magazine possible, but to all you readers for your undying support!

We are currently and officially halfway through our fifteenth year with Out & About Magazine, In the Valley & On the Coast. This past year we hit a record for content. In addition to the monthly issue we produced: the Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras program (May), Out & About Visitor’s Guide (July), The Taste of Morgan Hill program (September) and our annual Wine & Dine Guide (October). We’re currently working on our January issue, which will also have a pullout Health & Wellness Guide that you can refer to all year long for your healthcare needs.

After careful planning we decided to make a twelve-month calendar instead of the originally planned eighteen months. The calendars are a selection of our favorite vintage covers by Sylvia Wallace Myrvold and can be purchased at our office or through our website for $15 each or two for $25. A limited number will be printed, so get yours while they last. They are great gifts for your friends, co-workers, family members, and favorite waitress, waiter, mail carrier, teacher, etc.; you get the idea.

We have once again put together a feature with gift suggestions, to help you shop locally and to save you time. And, we have given you a little peak at some of the businesses in each of our core towns.

Everyone here at Out & About Magazine, including our little mascot Mimi, wish all of you and yours a healthy and happy Holiday Season. Our hope is that you find time to spend with the people in your lives that bring you comfort and love. We have definitely felt the love here at the magazine from all of you! It’s been a down right LOVE FEST!
