Editor's Letter




The September issue will always hold a special place in my heart as the September 2017 issue was the first issue published with me as the Editor. As I fall more in love with my career every day, I wonder now how it has only been two years since I took over VIP Bowling Green. I sit today and wonder if I even remember what life was like before I jumped into a position that would change my life. 

Just as I did this time last year, I grabbed a copy and read back through my first editor’s letter and reflected on the growth of the magazine, of our community and of my wonderful team. With each of you by my side (or on the other side of the camera) at charity events and throughout the community, VIP has grown each and every issue. I never realized then how much I would enjoy getting to spread my wings in the Bowling Green and learn more about the charities I hadn’t had a chance to be involved in before and meet hundreds of you.  

I mentioned last year in my Editor’s Letter how our community continues to offer a more diverse opportunity for event coverage and I think that diversity has grown even more in the following year. When you start flipping through the pages this month, make sure you check out our coverage of Concerts in the Park, SKYPAC shows and many many more! 

Our theme this issue, Fall Football Fashion brings you an inside look at the fashion trends brought to you by models from local boutiques. As this fashion raises your excitement for football season, make sure you check out the WKU Football schedule and make it to a game to support our local athletes. Our VIProfile for September, Chris Gerbig, gives you an inside look at his life and career and the impact that he and his wife, Tori, are making in Bowling green.

This issue also includes many events from Franklin-Simpson and a community profile showing their growth and their celebration of the city’s bicentennial. 

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 October.
