May-June 2015 Issue - Summer Sips

May 18, 2015 05:24PM ● Published by Kevin

Can you believe it? Summer is just around the corner! It seems like every season, we're saying the same thing: "It came so fast" and then it ends up going so quickly ... Laurie Fox goes more in depth about this phenomenon in our HomeStyles section in the May-June 2015 issue, which recently hit homes. She'll help you with some tips on reclaiming your agenda this year so you can get out and enjoy some new and fun activities.

This edition's community spotlight features Suzanne Newman, who has served the seniors of the city of Mansfield since 1998.

Next, Carol Ritchie joined us for another installment of Cookin' With Carol - this time whipping up a full fajita feast, accompanied by a bunch of delicious sides. She adds a margarita recipe to enjoy out in the sun as an exclusive web extra.

Our Local Flavor piece features BFF Asian Grill & Sports Bar. Owner/entrepreneur Charlie Pham sat down with us to tell his story.

The Your Neighbor feature in this edition highlights our local community theatre's president and artistic director, and we preview some of Mainstage's upcoming shows in our web extra photo gallery. 

As always, our digital articles and web extras are below for your enjoyment.

Browse around for articles and information on everything you need to know about the local community and let us know what you’d like to see more of!
