publisher's letter the timing of WellesleyWeston Magazine's winter issue coincides with the onset of the holiday season when all of us are busy preparing for family gatherings and festivities. It's always our hope that readers will be inspired by the articles and advertisements and will find the information useful during this action-packed time of year. Of course in Wellesley and Weston, we're used to having a lot going on. Our Inbox department is testament to just how much happens in our community all year long. This department has steadily grown in popularity throughout the years and, with this issue, we received a record number of submissions. We sincerely wish we C A R O LY N R O S S could print every newsworthy item we receive, but are unfortunately limited by space constraints. I encourage you to read our blog, wwmblog.com, to see many more Inbox items that are not published in the print issue. I also invite you to "like" WellesleyWeston Magazine on Facebook to receive updates on community news and to learn about upcoming events that you may be interested in attending. BETH FURMAN If you have a newsworthy item that you would like us to publish in Inbox, please send your submission to beth @ wellesleywestonmagazine.com jill@wellesleywestonmagazine.com. All submissions should be 75 words or less and can be accompanied by a headshot that is at least 4" x 6" at 300dpi. We are happy to edit your items and, while we welcome press releases for other magazine departments, Inbox items must be submitted in the appropriate 75-word format. With Thanksgiving happening so late this year, our shopping days are cut short, so now more than ever is the time to "shop local." Wellesley and Weston residents are fortunate to have a variety of spectacular stores at which to shop and get into the holiday spirit. Please use the pages of this magazine as a gift guide of sorts, and check out our advertisers who have all of the products and services you need for memorable holiday gifts for friends, family, and business associates. This is also the season for giving back to others and helping out in the community. I hope you enjoy our article "Finding Meaning through Volunteerism" that profiles just a few of our neighbors who take time out of their busy schedules to help others all year long, making a difference here at home and throughout the world. I was also inspired by the advice the international entrepreneurs profiled in our Business article had to offer. I hope you'll take their words to heart and perhaps even think about launching a venture of your own. We l l e s l e y We s t o n M a g a z i n e | w i n t e r 2 0 1 3 / 2 0 1 4 Enjoy the busy and beautiful holiday season and Happy New Year!
