I just wanted to take a moment and congratulate you on the first issue of “Life in the Finger Lakes.” I was so impressed by the magazine that I immediately subscribed!  I wish you great success and hope that the locals embrace this conception.

I also wanted to let you know that each summer I teach a study skills course at Cayuga Community College for middle school students. When I first began this project (7 years ago) I knew that I needed a good theme to “catch” their attention because…let’s face it…who wants to think about school and studying in August! Well, I selected the theme of the “Finger Lakes” and it has been a big HIT. We have lots of fun and while they are employing study skills and learning strategies that will transfer to the classroom, I know they are having fun gaining facts and insights into one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of your premier issue, and I am so thrilled!  We love it, and have a list of family we will send gift subscriptions to for the holidays.  My husband and I both grew up in the area, and our families are now scattered around the country.  They will love the pictures and articles, and hopefully it will entice them to come home for visits!

My neighbor happened to see the magazine on our table and was also interested, but I selfishly told him I need to take it with me on vacation next week, where we will be meeting some of our out-of-town family.  Is there a chance he might also receive a copy of this issue?  He and his wife have a boat on Cayuga Lake, and have just recently begun to really explore the area!
