Dear Readers, Advertisers, Friends, and Family,
As 2023 comes to a close and we reflect on another wonderful year, the team at Middleburg Life would like to thank the Middleburg and Hunt Country communities, our readers, and our advertising partners for your continued support of the magazine. Through each of 2023’s twelve issues, we have had the opportunity to make new connections, revisit beloved stories, and meaningfully engage with the members of our small town and beyond. It is this aspect of what we do that we value most. In the holiday spirit, each member of the team would like to express their gratitude and wish you all a very happy holiday season and prosperous New Year.
Thank you to all those who have supported the magazine throughout the years, and especially this year for our 40th anniversary. To our subscribers, advertisers, and friends, we deeply value the close connections we have made within the community in 2023 and look forward to further enriching those bonds in the New Year. And to the Middleburg Life team, thank you for your hard work and dedication to the magazine. – David Greenhill, Owner
