Here at CityView we are commemorating our 10 year anniversary! Ten years of telling stories, exploring our community and sharing it all with you. We love to share all the ways people give, live, eat, drink, think and make art, and so, this magazine is not only a celebration, but also a dedication to you.
We are doing things differently this go round. We asked you and your neighbors about the ways you give back and why. We explored how CityView got its start and what’s happened between then and now. We even stopped by the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens to take a staff picture and see where the NATURE CONNECTS® Art with Lego® Bricks Exhibit will be setting up shop at the end of September. There will be more than half a million Legos there!
In this Culture & Community issue we are also celebrating the Arts Council’s 38th International Folk Festival. I’m so very grateful to the Arts Council for a Regional Artist Project Grant (RAPG), which allowed me to attend the Sewanee Writers’ Conference at the University of the South in July. What wonderful resources we have here in Cumberland county!
Thank you, finally, to our readers, our advertisers, our Fayetteville neighbors and all of the CityView staff and family.
Here’s to many more CityView issues ahead!
