A Note From the Publishers – July 2021

by | Jul 2, 2021 | A Note From the Publisher

In the 31 years of producing the Santa Clarita Magazine, I have never been so moved by an advertisement than the one that is currently running on page 33 of this publication. Audrey, Jennie, Michelle and Sara, friends of a local resident are reaching out and asking for your help for a dear friend. It’s a big ask but one that could save the life of a local wife and mother of two. If you, or if you know anyone that can help, please email savealife@gmail.com for more information. Thank you, we will be doing follow up stories in future issues!
May we be the first to wish everyone a very Happy 4th of July! It’s such a relief to finally be able to celebrate with our families and friends. This will be the happiest of holidays for many, a time to make up for all the missed celebrations we have had to endure over the past 16 months. So, whether you are doing a backyard barbeque or visiting one of the many fabulous restaurants here in town, we hope you enjoy just getting together and being able to catch up on lost conversations, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings etc.!
For the past 7-years, we have loved featuring our fabulous Old Town Newhall business owners on our cover and this year is no exception. Please take a look at what’s happening on Main Street and the surrounding areas, we have a great section dedicated to all of them starting on page 48. If you haven’t visited Old Town Newhall in a while, now is the time, there’s so much to do.
Talking about things to do, it seems that local events are picking up and with a sigh of relief, ZOOM events seem to be a thing of the past!
