Editor's Letter




The anticipation grows for me each and every month as we bring you a new issue of VIP Bowling Green and this month we also have exciting news for you as we welcome two new local faces to our team. Elizabeth Burden and Morgan Hawkins, both born and raised in Bowling Green and Western Kentucky University graduates, have joined our team. We can’t wait to collaborate with them to continue to make VIP the best representation of our community as possible.

The October issue is packed full of community events that bring Bowling Green and the surrounding area together to build relationships while supporting great causes. We enjoy the growth and popularity of VIP in Glasgow and Franklin and hope that those relationships continue to strengthen and we are able to bring you more events from those communities as well.

The feature this month is All About Women with special highlights on strong business women in our community. Make sure you read each of their stories to learn more about how they have grown in careers that they love and hope to inspire your girls to do the same. Also included in this issue is a great story about just how huge of an impact that Women’s Fund has made in South Central Kentucky and how they plan to continue that impact for generations to come.

This month’s event coverage brings you a look at the fundraisers, sporting events and celebrations held throughout September. A spotlight on a three night event at the Historic L&N Depot, the USO Canteen was an event to continue raising funds and awareness to Save the Depot. We are also excited to bring you coverage of Mud Happens, SOKY’s Got Talent, Fireman’s Ball, Birdies for Brittney and much more including an annual event, Mason Cup, held at Olde Stone in Memory of Mason Goodnight benefiting the Playing for Mason Foundation.

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 November.
