Southington Magazine
Many friends, family and business acquaintances have voiced their disdain for the year 2020. Most just want
it to go away. It has indeed been a new and different experience for everyone. No one expected a worldwide pan-
demic and all the changes that would come with it. My heart goes out to the many families that have lost loved
ones to this virus. It seems like a small percentage of the world population has been affected, but it’s not small if
it’s your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Also struggling are many local businesses, especially retail
and those in the hospitality industry. I hope the good people of Southington find it in their heart to shop local this Holiday Season. Online shopping is quick and easy, but we need to put a heartfelt effort into our community and help everyone through this crisis.
I believe during this time, that the Southington Magazine will bring some happiness and cheer into your home and into your life. We are featuring 10 local stories, with local people from your town. They are fun and informative. We’ve brought you a few contests to enter with a chance to win money or gift cards. We have also highlighted 67 local businesses through their advertisements. These are the folks that support this publication; and I ask in return that you support them. Check out the coupons on page 54 and see if you can use any of these this season.
RDS Media and the Southington Magazine are now entering our tenth year of publication. It is amazing how quickly 10 years pass. I am always delighted at the enthusiastic reception we continue to receive from Southington residents and businesses. We de- liver our publication to every home in town. If you do not receive it, or know someone who did not receive it; please reach out to me and the post office to inquire about that.
Now please find a comfortable spot to enjoy this 42nd issue of Southington Magazine. We hear at RDS Media wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, and a better 2021.
