Time to say "Good-bye"
After 8 1⁄2 years of publication, the October edition of the Lake Country Weekender will be the last. When I first started in May 2011, my mission was to promote the arts, events, and tourism activities in the Little Finger Lakes communities, as well as provide a marketing tool to the local businesses, and this was my focus as I published throughout these past years. I believe that mission was fulfilled, as I have heard many good comments from readers and advertisers on how my publication kept them informed and brought attention to the area’s events and businesses.
It has been a pleasure to do so, but hard work as well, and after 46 years of experience in the publication and newspaper business, I am ready to retire.
Many thanks to all the loyal advertisers and contributors who made the Lake Country Weekender possible, and also to the readers. I will miss my interactions with all of you. Good-bye, and please continue to support your local arts, events, and businesses.
