Editor Note: A Mid-Volume Update

West Texas,

I can’t believe it, but a good amount of time has actually passed since we launched Volume 2 in September. The new edition has received a warm welcome from the community and I hope it is sitting on a coffee table or shelf in your home readily available for use. After all, one of the best things we can do as community members is to shop locally from those who are right here in our backyard. 

As we continue the creation of Volume 3, I wanted to pop in and share some a short editor update. We are almost 100% full, but still have spaces remaining for everything from restaurants and men’s retail to service-based businesses like dealerships, schools and clubs. The Scouting period for Volume 3 will close in April, and I’d love to hear from you this week if you’re interested in being #scouted. You can reach me at [email protected].

Finally, as we ascend into spring after what I’d consider a friendly winter, I am so excited for the sunshine, warmer days and spring events to return. With it, a new sense of opportunity usually tags along. As this happens, I hope we can all slow down, appreciate the sunshine and the spring wind, and keep working hard to make West Texas a better place. 

With gratitude,
