Giving Back Awards
The Giving Back Awards/Community Impact Appreciation reception is our way of saying “thank you” to a variety of local nonprofits and businesses that make our region a better place to live. Likewise, we received many “thank you” notes via email and on social media following the event on Nov. 13.
Becky Tweedy with Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg said: “Thank you again for hosting such a lovely event last night! Raising awareness of the nonprofits and their missions in our community is a wonderful goal, and what a fun way to go about it!”
Mike Weston with The Journey said: “Thanks again for inviting us to be a part of last night’s awards event. All of us here at The Journey appreciate what you and Lynchburg Living do for our community.”

Top Teachers Search
A panel of judges is sifting through dozens of nominations to determine our 2019 Top Teachers. We received close to 100 recommendations from the community. See who the panel selected in the March/April issue of Lynchburg Living!
Readers Cause Restocking
After our November/December issue hit stands, many of you read about our artist profile Sarah Raessler then went straight to Givens Books to buy a book of her work.
Her mother Deborah wrote to us: “We are receiving many positive comments throughout the community, and we even had to take more books to Givens. Our hats are off to you, not only for what you have done for Sarah, but for what you do to highlight so many good things about living in Lynchburg!”
