Editor's Letter




2020 has been such a difficult and confusing year for everyone. As the trees are beginning to change and the temperatures are cooling off after a very warm start to Fall in Bowling Green, we know that it means 2020 is coming to an end. Throughout the difficult months we have faced, we hope that each issue of VIP has brought something positive and exciting to look forward to.

In this issue, VIP Bowling Green worked closely with local builders and designers to bring you a look inside the 2020 Builders Association of South Central Kentucky Parade of Homes. This section is dedicated to showing you the newest trends in building a custom home, quickly expanding neighborhoods and all of the bright new ideas for lighting, appliances, furniture and design.

Also included this month is our VIP at HOME feature on a beautiful spec home build by Kerry Jones with Interior Designer, Sarah Smallings. This home was featured on the 2019 Parade of Homes and photographed by Harris Visual Media

Our VIProfile features the owners of Paradise Point at Barren River Lake, John and Sebrina Erskine who are well known for their kind spirit and opening arms. Within this issue, we also have a section of local entrepreneurs and we are excited to tell you their stories and hope they inspire you to follow wherever your dreams take you in life, as they have.

As we were starting to increase the events happening back in our community, the cold weather is slowing that back down as outdoor events are safer and allow for social distancing. This month’s event coverage brings you a look at the fundraisers, sporting events and celebrations that were held throughout the month of October, just a little different than they would normally occur.

Although the Junior Achievement Chili & Cheese Luncheon did not include a Pep Rally this year, the staff at Wendys of Bowling Green and Montana Grille helped coordinate a platform of to-go meals that brought more success that years past. Also, within this issue, our team brings you event coverage from the Orchestra Kentucky, Traveler’s Cellar Winery and more!

I hope that each of you enjoy this issue and find a way to make the best of the current climate over the holidays while savoring the slow moments with your families.

As always, thank you for being a loyal reader. 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 must-have resource for all things Bowling Green. Without your submissions, suggestions and feedback we could never be as comprehensive as we are.

See you in December.
