“From the Publisher” February 2017


Dear Readers,

While I do enjoy writing this letter each month, I only have so much space and there’s always so much to talk about.

I have to begin with our “My Giving” piece on the Ruth Mott Foundation and their focus on north Flint – they are dedicating substantial resources to improving life for many, many people there. It’s impressive, but not surprising that this benevolent organization has plans to make things happen in the underserved areas of our city. Our “Community” and “Outreach” pieces are always inspiring, and the list of subjects seems never-ending (job security, right?) We have profiles of the Genesee District Library’s Award of Excellence honorees, and a story about two Flint agencies – REACH and Traverse Place – that help families to resolve crises and give homeless youth the resources to take control of their lives. 

Going Downtown? Now, there’s a trolley to take you where you want to go – so great! It’s the result of a commitment by so many people and organizations, including the Hagerman Foundation whose CEO, Jocelyn Hagerman, is our “My Success” subject. I always enjoy reading these pieces. 

Everybody loves a good love story; in this “month of love,” we have one that might surprise you. And our always great variety includes the “My Music” piece on Moshe Benson, a gifted young pianist and composer; “My Eats” features a Downtown hotspot, and “My Sport” profiles a young hockey standout. Check out “I Remember Buick” – our Flashback that has some really great memories submitted by our readers.

There’s so much more … including 16 pages of faces in our “My Haps” section, which features coverage of the FIA’s Community Gala celebrating Women of a New Tribe – an exhibit of photographs by Jerry Taliaferro. Check out the whole fascinating story. And, don’t miss the latest from our contributing writers; I look forward to reading their insightful columns every month.

It’s a great time to curl up with your My City Magazine and be engaged by content that informs, enlightens and entertains.

Thanks for reading,
