The spotlight is shining on you, Stark County

I’m convinced the editors of Forbes magazine have never read About magazine. It’s simply not possible that this area could be named “Most miserable” by that magazine if its editors had taken note of all of the great local people and places featured in About over the last two years.

One thing I’ve learned as editor of this magazine is that Stark County is filled with some amazing people and places — and that we should all be proud to call Stark County home.

As a magazine focused on the positives of our community, About is an incredible opportunity to spotlight all things Stark County and just let them shine. This month marks About’s second birthday and, I have to say, we’re still shining.

The magazine has evolved and grown substantially in the past two years. We’ve expanded to include About Your Home and About Your Wedding, two additional publications focused specifically on those parts of Stark County life. This month, we’ll add an About Yearbook to the mix. The annual yearbook will take a look back at events of the past year that have been featured in our ever-popular Snapshots section.

As a toddler in the magazine world, we truly appreciate your support as we continue on our mission to showcase all of the best things about life in Stark County. Happy birthday, About.

Summer!

Yes, I know it’s not officially summer yet. And I realize that the cover of this magazine screams with anticipation of the sunny season while we’re still firmly settled into spring.

But now is the time to plan how to fill those long summer days — and how to cram the most into that coveted time in Ohio. We found plenty to fill up your day planner. Our 10-page Summer Guide is packed with options. With so many places and events, these pages aren’t intended to be comprehensive. They are intended as a highlights guide that you can keep and refer to when you are looking for something to do — or when the kids proclaim, “I’m bored!”

Look for info on swimming, outdoor concerts, wineries, festivals, strawberry picking, outdoor theater, sporting events, camps and more.

Enjoy!
