We invite you to join us in celebrating the fifth print issue of our community-driven magazine, available at local retailers by May 15. The first release parties was held at Double Bluff Brewing Company in Langley on Wednesday, May 18 and a second party will be at Flyers Restaurant & Brewery, 32295 S.R. 20 in Oak Harbor on Wednesday, May 25 from 4 to 6 p.m.
In this issue, produced entirely by Island residents, we’re celebrating the land we live on, the water that surrounds us, and some of the plants, animals and insects that inhabit our glorious home. With a variety of articles and a plentitude of gorgeous photos, we consider bees, local beer, the creatures inhabiting the waters surrounding us, and the evolving lives of our sheltering trees. We also feature the Whidbey Children’s Theater as it observes its 35th anniversary, recounting the joy and magic fostered by this beloved island institution.
“The magazine exists to feature the arts, culture and lifestyle of local people with the words and photography of local writers and photographers,” said publisher Sue Taves. “I invite everyone to come join us as we celebrate the island and its people.”
Copies of the magazine will be available for purchase at both events, with writers and photographers on hand to answer questions. For more information, visit www.WhidbeyLifeMagazine.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
