Abileneans have been busy, as you will see in this edition of Abilene Living Magazine – YOUR HOMETOWN publication. We have the inside scoop from the Mayor and his wife, Nancy - Get to know Mayor Archibald in ‘Meet the Mayor!’ Also, wedding season is upon us – invitations will soon be filling your mailbox. We have a special article featuring local couples and their wedding photos. Read up on the do’s and don’ts of wedding etiquette while viewing these lovely brides in ‘Weddings and My Friend, Emily.’
Spring has Sprung and we are excited about all of the Happenings in our Hometown. Please continue to share them with us at cara@ hometown-living.com. Also in every issue, Hometown Bundles of JOY. See the darling new faces and feel free to have your photographer contact us with your newborn’s picture today!
On a personal note, we want to say thank you to Paul White & Jason McDonald, our two longtime photographers – who along with many others take the fabulous pictures seen inside each issue. Our key writers, Rebecca Parvaresh and Esther Millette, always add a personal touch to their professional work – as well as keep a pulse on the busyness that is Abilene!
In the Spring 2012 issue we featured Doris Shead, owner of The Lydian Market (on S. 20th), named for Lydia in the Bible who prospered because she used her business as a ministry. We continue to get calls from that article wanting to learn how to get in touch with Doris. I felt it was important to share that Doris unexpectedly went to be with the Lord on February 12th. Doris diligently dedicated her store and life to Christ’s work – she was an asset to the Abilene community and will be missed.
