This issue is chock-full of great people in our community using their gifts for good in a variety of ways. We are each given different talents, but what good are they if we keep them to ourselves?
Let your light shine by using those talents as you are called to do! Josh & Zephare Ramirez, Jackie White, and their team continue to pour their energy into giving to others through the Lubbock Dream Center.
Russell Donaway (current President) and Bernie Gradel (past President) have dedicated themselves to the thriving Lubbock Lions Club, an organization that in 88 years has done an immeasurable amount of good in the city. What are your gifts? How can you put them to use today? A small act can make a big difference in someone’s life.
We encourage you to shop local this season and start with the contributors to this publication (see a full list of advertisers on page 135). Please tell them you saw their ad in Lubbock Lifestyles Magazine and thank them for this free publication detailing a few of the many people, places, and things that make Lubbock such a great place to call home!
I love fall and I love all things vintage. This season take a moment to reflect and slow down. Yes, it takes effort to slow down - especially with the impending holiday season, but how else can you treasure the memories being made if you are not intentionally present for them? Think back 50 plus years (to the days on our cover this issue) and enjoy the amazing change of seasons before us.
