From the PublisherSeptember 2023


Dear Readers,

Who’s ready for fall?

Every September, we feature photos of the huge crowds at Back to the Bricks® … a sure sign that the summer will soon be ending – a bittersweet time of year, for sure. But My City is here for it!

This month, we highlight local First Responders, some of the “faces of the frontlines” who are there when we need them, risking their own safety to ensure ours. Local firefighters and law enforcement personnel are involved with their communities and in addition to protecting residents, they provide safety education and many other services.

Not all law enforcement officers are men and women – some are man’s best friend! The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has a K9 Unit with highly-trained dogs and handlers who assist their fellow officers in difficult and dangerous situations.

The staff at our local hospitals include many frontline personnel who are dedicated to serving and worthy of recognition. We learned of recent accolades received by both Hurley Medical Center and McLaren Flint and are always happy to highlight the excellence of our community’s healthcare providers.

Our “Style Issue” features another group of Greater Flint’s Best Dressed! We were so pleased to do the photo shoots on the campus of Mott Community College (celebrating their centennial this month!) and appreciate our participants who took time to make it happen.

There’s much more in this issue, including food, music and our variety of contributed columns. It’s time to grab something pumpkin-spiced and spend some time with My City.

The summer “Haps” have wrapped – I hope you are welcoming the new season and ready to enjoy plenty of Flint-style fall fun ahead!

Thanks for reading!
