Readers Taking Action
We are always thrilled to hear how our magazine is improving the community. Thank you to reader June Najjum for sending us this note about our March/April issue: “I wanted to thank Kaye Moomaw for writing the article about ‘Planting for Birds and Bees’ in the March issue. I turned my garden into a certified pollinator habitat. I don’t live in Lynchburg but I live in nearby Bedford County. I’m proud of my sign in the front yard. I happened to pick up your magazine at an antique shop in Lynchburg while I was shopping with a friend.
You never know what kind of positive impact your magazine makes out there!”
Perceptive readers may notice a small difference in our Art department, which is now called Arts and Culture. We wanted to open up this section of the magazine to include not only local art forms—visual art, theater, dance etc.—but also in-depth articles about the ways of life and customs of different groups of people in our region.

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to support our 10th annual Lynchburg Restaurant Week June 12-19. We had 13 restaurants participate this year, with many owners telling us they were impressed with the crowds.
On Facebook, Burt Taylor, owner of Stoney Badger, said: “We were slammed tonight because of it.” Also on Facebook, Tim Overstreet told us he had lunch at Trio during Lynchburg Restaurant Week: “First time there, very pleased. Will go back!”
A portion of our sponsorship proceeds was donated to Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg. They tell us they have seen a surge in demand since the pandemic began. If you want to help out, visit their website to learn more about donating or volunteering: mealsonwheelslynchburg.org.
