Brooke Notes: Publisher’s Perspective

This month, we are featuring Old Salem on our cover. If you’ve been a resident of Winston-Salem for five minutes or 50 years, I’m positive you are familiar with this historic staple in our community. People travel from all over to witness the history of this place. On February 11th, 1935, my grandfather was born on Salt Street in Old Salem! How cool is that? I grew up hearing countless stories about Old Salem from my Papaw, and I know I’ll always treasure them. Today, I live close enough that I drive by Old Salem multiple times a day. The beautiful Moravian stars hung up on the bridge are a view that never gets old. Read all about Old Salem and the Magic of a Moravian Christmas!

Speaking of the holiday season…they say, “to give is better than to receive” and I couldn’t agree more! If you are looking for ways to give back over the holidays, check out THIS article. Elisa gives us five incredible “giving back” opportunities ranging from the Winston-Salem Jaycees’ to Senior Services. 

We know this time of year also calls for a little shopping. If you need some local gift ideas, check out the expansive holiday gift guide in our sister magazine, Forsyth Woman! We’ve got something for everyone on your list! 

Another article in this issue that you don’t want to miss: Bullying and How We Can All Help Stop It. I’m sure we all know of someone who has been negatively affected by bullying at some point in their life. The good news is that bullying is preventable and Renee provides us with a list of tactics that we can all put to use.
