This October edition marks the 21st anniversary of the EAST COBBER magazine. 244 monthly issues, 19 community parades, a website, a Facebook page, twitter feed, 3 children, and the same husband later, I am still focused on informing local residents about our good neighbors, special events and local issues in East Cobb County. Since 1993, the EAST COBBER has been publishing articles about East Cobb volunteers, artists and advertisers, clubs and community leaders, musicians and moms. The
EAST COBBER front cover will continue to feature those people in East Cobb County making this area an even better place to live.
The EAST COBBER has also become well-known for its special sections. This issue features our ninth annual Private School Guide, as well as our monthly Seniors section, Dining Guide and Health & Wellness section. It has always been my intention to provide useful and relevant information that you can’t find anywhere else and that focuses exclusively on East Cobb.
I hope you enjoy reading the EAST COBBER as much as I enjoy putting each edition together month after month. After so many years of meeting readers and business owners, I am reminded everyday of how many really nice people there are in this community. East Cobb has so many residents who take the initiative to help out, to share their opinions and/or talents, in order to make East Cobb County a better place to live. The annual EAST COBBER Parade & Festival is another example of neighbors coming together to celebrate our great community, and for me, as the producer/director of the parade, I am able to witness first
hand the genuine kindness, generosity, and cooperation East Cobbers demonstrate to make the this special event such a rousing success. See pages 6-9 for some photos taken that day.
I may put the magazine out, but it belongs to the East Cobb community. Special credit goes to the East Cobbers that reach out to
me to discuss story ideas, submit articles, and to advertise. Of course, I am grateful to those who just pick up the paper at one of our 500+ drop-off points every month and actually read the paper! In a world of conglomerates and sensational journalism, your kind comments and constructive criticisms inspire me to continue my work as publisher of a truly grass-roots publication. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas, comments and critiques.
