Welcome to our very first edition of – LocaLeben!
LocaLeben is about life – Local Life…
local – the advancement and enjoyment of community.
Our purpose is to share the achievements and splendor of the neighborhood – the local economy – recognizing the importance of doing business with our neighbors and supporting the delicate interdependence of it all.
We value community and work to encourage a prosperous and sustainable LocaLeben.
Within the pages of LocaLeben you will find content reminiscent of a quieter time. Arts – History – Legends & Lore – and a few opinions.
As we began this project, many people came to help. They are passionate folks willing to share their time and stories. Doing good things that benefit all of us - inspirational stories that warrant recognition. You will know many of them and see them around town. Please thank them for sharing.
By starting at the beginning of our history, we immediately realize the past is key to our today and the strength of our community. As my mom always reminds me “everything happens for a reason” and our hometown and this little magazine are no exception. Understanding our place, we see the need to embrace, celebrate and nurture our environment – our hometown.
Our advertisers support the magazine. The businesses you see in LocaLeben took a chance on us. They bought an ad without ever seeing an actual issue – they are our angel investors. Please thank them by supporting their local businesses.
This is not our magazine. It is your magazine. We are merely the facilitators.
Let me explain – our model is different than others. We don’t have staff writers who try to interpret your story. We believe the best person to tell your story is you. It is the best way to know your story is told right. Don’t worry – we will help – you are among friends.
We invite you to share your stories in LocaLeben. They bring meaning to our lives together. Help us restore our town back to the vibrant community it longs to be. Give me a call at (920) 306-1189 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
