Editor's Letter




Whether you are a parent, student, teacher, or none of the above, August brings a sense of excitement for a new beginning. Walking into any retail store will greet you with large signs of back to school and the fresh smells of new pencils and tennis shoes. A new school year brings a fresh start for our future movers and shakers; what a time to celebrate! VIP Murfreesboro is also celebrating a new issue after our combo June/July issue has been out for two months.

Our August issue is a packed resource of endless health and beauty offerings right here in your community. You will find articles that can help you with everything from hormone health to skin care and everything in between. We have also developed a specialized section of information on the multitude of senior health options available right here in Murfreesboro. Look for the special tabbed section to find all of that valuable information in one spot!

What a summer Murfreesboro has had! You won’t flip far without an event to read about and experience through our photographic coverage. Look for the always exciting Secret Garden Party, the ever entertaining United We Style program, and even coverage of Uncle Macon Days, plus so much more. The opportunities to become involved in this amazing place we all call home are endless, and you continue to show up and show out by being there and supporting every single one!

It is my pleasure to get to greet you each month with highlights that you’ll see as you peruse our product. We work hard to bring you a magazine that can truly be utilized as more than just a quick read. We want to be a true resource for all things Murfreesboro, and for that, we thank you. Without your submissions, suggestions, and feedback, we could never be as comprehensive. Keep ‘em coming!
