Well, you canhave input and help shape the website just like your ideashelp shape your magazine. Now you have a place to list all of thenonprofit community organizations that are active in the community. We are alsodeveloping pages where we list the local houses of worsh ip. In addition, we nowoffer every magazine in a fully downloadable PDF format, rather than the outdatedflipbook format we used to have. This will allow you to send the magazine, or linksto it, to friends and family both near and far.We tied our website into Facebook as well, not to get the biggest list of friends
we could get, but to have a place to keep our readers abreast of all the news we ge tbetween issues. It also gives us a place to upload all the photos from communityevents that we dont have room for in the magazine.As with all things, theres always room for improvement, but we always have
open ears. If you have comments about our new website or want to see yourorganization listed, e-mail email@example.com with your link orfeedback.

When I think about spring, I cant help but think about light. The days get lighter, the sun stays with us a little longer each day. When we have a great idea, a light bulb goes off in ourminds. At Bedford County Magazine we try tospotlight our communities. What are you doing to bea light? If you or an organization that you volunteeror work for is a light in the community, will you letme know? So many good deeds are left unsung! Ifyou have a family member who is in the armed forces,or if your church group or Mom or Dad are providing aservice to someone in need, we want to know! Please e-mailyour ideas and photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
