Having acquired the 16-year old Bedford Magazine in May, I was very proud of our September/October first issue of BEDFORD & NEW CANAAN MAGAZINE! I thought the interview with the two Congressmen who represent our readers in New York and Connecticut emphasized that the greater Bedford and New Canaan towns are a part of the same community. Our article Major League Locals about our four local kids, Griffin Dey (Detroit Tigers), Curt Casali (Cincinnati Reds), my friend from growing up around the corner Richard Slenker (Houston Astros), and Henry Davis (Louisville Sluggers), written by Dey, is just the kind of local feel-good story we want to bring you. And I felt like we got B&NC MAG readers something better than even a seat inside the ropes at golf’s PGA Championship, with the terrific diary by Rob Labritz.
It’s my mission to make every issue as interesting and meaningful, and our commitment to keep it all local and always positive...and I think this November/December Holiday issue is another winner!
We’re honored to have Martha as the B&NC MAG cover feature. And we’re already working with some of the other biggest bold face names and most intriguing people in our area for upcoming covers and features. Our business features on each of Tata Harper and Andrew Tow give you some private time with these two business giants - who you might just run into at the local market. Watch It! is a ‘timely’ look at the vintage timepiece market, focused on Bedford locals Tania Edwards and Cooper Zelnick. And our look at Clare Murray and the Community Center of Northern Westchester is the kind of exposure we intend to bring to at least one local charity in each issue. (Along with the ads we give to charitable organizations, like Make-A-Wish and Paul Newman’s Hole In The Wall Gang Camp.)
Our magazine is mailed to you - for free. My hope, particularly with this Holiday issue, is that every reader will take a moment after each read to think positive, take stock of our community, and consider some act of giving to a local charity or other good cause.
We couldn’t be more appreciative for all the raves we’ve received. Please let our advertisers know that seeing their ad in our magazine motivated you. Please go online at bedfordnewcanaanmag.com or to our Instagram @BedfordNewCanaanMag, and let us know what you like and don’t like, or if you have an idea about something local we should cover. And, as Yogi Bera might say, if you live in Armonk, Bedford, Bedford Hills, Katonah, Mt. Kisco, Lewisboro, Pound Ridge, North Salem, Waccabuc or New Canaan, and for some reason you aren’t reading this, then please let us know.
