Happy Anniversary to Us!

For 20 years, we’ve helped celebrate the birthdays of your children. We’ve kept you posted about businesses opening in the community. We’ve announced the accomplishments of your young students, and given a voice to many professionals in the community with advice to share.

Now it’s our turn to celebrate! 2016 marks our 20th anniversary and we are amazed and humbled to see how far we’ve come. But we couldn’t have done it alone, so while we celebrate our accomplishments, we’d like to celebrate the folks who helped us with our success.

First we’re grateful for the vision of the founders of the TowneLaker, which started in 1996 as a newsletter serving the then fledgling, master-planned community of Towne Lake.  The TowneLaker wasn’t an only child for long; we expanded into northern Cherokee County, Cobb and Paulding counties with Around Woodstock, Sixes Living and Around Acworth magazines.

We’re grateful for the advertisers who trust us with their business, a responsibility we don’t take lightly.  As a result of our success, we’ve been able to expand our reach to 65,000 readers to give the businesses we support a broader audience.

We appreciate the city and county officials who make the job so much easier by letting us help them share the good news of growth in Cherokee County.  Mayors, city council members, county commissioners, state house representatives, school officials, university presidents, economic development specialists and other local leaders all are regulars in our publications.  Our goal is to connect you to the folks who make things happen in our burgeoning communities.

And you – our faithful readers – drive our editorial content.  We couldn’t do this without your help!  We count on your emails with pictures of your family and friends, victories on the baseball and football fields, homecoming celebrations and so much more.  And we work hard to make sure our pages are filled with uplifting and relevant articles that you will enjoy.

Four magazines – and counting – from our humble beginnings in Towne Lake.  Thank you for the support you’ve shown us over the years.  Our staff members take joy at the sight of you reading the latest issue  while waiting in your doctor’s office or eating at your favorite restaurant.

We’re honored to be a part of your lives and look forward to many more years of doing life with you.
