Editor's Letter




Fall is HERE! Can you feel it? While schedules may pick up pace, the calm, temperate weather somehow offers a tranquil assurance. Fall certainly brings with it a season of comfort, through cozy fires, warm blankets and fulfilling food. As you view our upcoming calendar of events, you’ll find so many opportunities to engage in all of the above – so many festivals, bonfires and fall food! I challenge you to make sure you pick at least one new event and take it in!

The events in this issue are once again evidence of the power of Murfreesboro. There are no limits to the way each of you will support your community – from running a 5K to honor victims of 9/11 to “hammering down” the gas on a 95-mile motorcycle ride in the rain to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity. You’ll even compete at the highest level of Putt Putt Golf to make sure the nutritional needs of all are met. We are so excited to continue to share all of these creative ways to assist those in need.

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” ? Diane Mariechild

In this issue, we proudly celebrate women as we highlight many women who play vital roles in their careers and community. Our Leading Ladies feature tells the stories of local women who
are devoted to leading, supporting and celebrating everyone and everything in their paths. Flip to the feature to meet these amazing women!

Thanks for your support and feedback. You are what makes VIP Murfreesboro community
centered. Please continue to let us know about events and activities through our website, www.vipmurfreesboro.com. We want to keep a full calendar of activities from which to choose during this season to keep your families engaged.
