It has been quite the whirlwind the last few months. My fiancée just found out she has a new job right here in Beaver Dam; we have been renovating our house and, most importantly, planning our wedding, which will be July 26th. I promised her I wouldn’t spend my entire note to you saying how wonderful she is and how thankful I am to be building a life with her in our hometown. So, instead, just this paragraph.
This issue has been one of those where things just came together, all because of the people in this community. One contributor, Joanna Grey, was visiting the Dodge County Historical Society from Virginia the exact time I was there. We got to talking and she jumped at the opportunity to share her family’s story. Our cover photo was another great moment when the universe just delivered. Walking through the Swan City Car Show looking for our annual car cover, this majestic yet gritty Mopar pulls in just as we walk up. My mind was made up. However, we needed a place where we could photograph this 1966 Dodge Charger to really do it justice. Dennis Steinkraus generously allowed us to photograph the car in his building, which we are incredibly grateful for. Without access to that location, we would not have been able to have such an outstanding cover. Noah Katsma’s final image is a compliment to both the car and the location.
