Happy New Year!
For those who are new to MCM – and our recent subscriber list says there are many of you – we like to highlight a sample of the previous year’s stories in our January “Year in Review” feature. With the wide variety of subjects in each month’s issue, it’s not easy to choose! We look for stories that inspire our readers and communicate to those outside of Greater Flint that our city is heading in a positive direction. In addition to our layouts and photography, the diversity of our content is something many people comment about, and we take great pride in that. We hope you enjoy the look back.
Looking forward, we feature the new president of the Ruth Mott Foundation, Raquel Thueme, who has years of leadership experience with the organization. We wish her the best!
Speaking of the best … we’re excited to present Greater Flint’s Best Dressed 2018! The nominees (and winners) are profiled. We think it’s fun, and just one more unique format for highlighting our City-zens. My thanks to The Durant and The Capitol Theatre for their cooperation on our photo shoots. Our photographer, Kayce McClure, was new to MCM when this project started and she took on quite a task! It’s a great group of people – we are so happy with the results and hope you enjoy the feature.
After nearly 80 issues of MCM, finding new ways to feature Greater Flint food is a challenge – but, we like a challenge! January is National Soup Month, so we’re dishing on some customer favorites at many local eateries. There are a few I definitely want to try.
It’s never a challenge to find stories about Flint’s robust arts community. Area residents have exceptional opportunities to experience world-class art – there’s truly something for everyone. Read about the upcoming exhibition at the Flint Institute of Arts: Miracles and Glory Abound by Vanessa German, who will also perform at the 12th Annual Community Gala this month.
And, we’re starting a year-long history series this month: “Flint Through the Decades”. Our city’s storied beginnings make great reading and our history pieces are always reader favorites.
Finally, My City subscribers are receiving the winter issue of Wellness along with their January magazine. It’s mid-Michigan’s most-read wellness publication! If you haven’t yet subscribed.
I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!
