Hello, Friends & Neighbors:
Autumn has arrived as advertised. I hate to see summer go, but there is something
refreshing about the cooler air, the colorful leaves, and Connecticut’s spectacular landscape.
There is nothing like waking up early to catch the sunrise. Fall in New England is
a gift to appreciate, and it is important to take a breath of fresh air and reflect on all we
have to be thankful for.
In our Autumn edition of Seasons, we hear from Chuck Joseph, whose family owns
ShopRite stores in West Hartford and Canton, and Len Felson, who explores the heritage
of a family’s crazy quilt. Diane Melton captures the excitement of the Connecticut
YOUTH Forum. Emily Cahill finds comforting Italian fare at Billy Grant’s Restaurant
Bricco and Bricco Trattoria. In Notes on Nature, Kathy Goff chronicles the magic and
mystery of nighthawks. Fall marks the new television season, and John Hartnett has an
interesting view of HGTV that many men probably share.
A final thought about an ever-present word, local. We hear it all the time in our
travels and on TV: support local businesses, buy farm-fresh local food. At Seasons
Magazines, we not only believe in going local, we are local to the core. We use the
talents of local writers, photographers, and designers; few if any companies in central
Connecticut can say that anymore.
Thanks to our readers, followers, and advertising partners. When you’re out and
about, please visit our advertisers: they understand, believe in and invest in Seasons and
allow us to produce the quality magazines you have come to expect. Let them know you
James P. Tully
