by Jennifer Vickers, Timbergram Editor, Retired
As you browse through this beautiful new edition of The Timbergram, you may notice a few small changes that are evidence of one very big changing of the guard. After a months-long search, Woodbrook Ln homeowner Alison Reynolds has taken over as print editor for the TMCC newsletter.
For longtime readers and residents, it will come as no surprise that this is a bittersweet transition for me personally. The Timbergram has long been the primary way neighborhood residents have kept up not only with civic club news but with the happenings in our shady corner of the city. As the editor, I’ve been grateful to have a finger on the pulse of the neighborhood and to connect with so many of you. I promise you, nothing makes me smile like hearing from a neighbor who is a “cover to cover” reader of the newsletter! However, as my real estate business has grown, it seems the time needed for this labor of love is no longer something I have to offer. I’ll miss the fun and creative process of putting the stories of Timbergrove into the pages of The Timbergram, but I couldn’t be more excited to turn the reigns over to Alison.
Alison is passionate and enthusiastic about her new role and her professional background in marketing for law firm Vinson & Elkins is a win for TMCC. Expect to see a continued commitment to sharing committee news, updates on local issues affecting Timbergrove Manor, fun reminders of coming events, and more in the pages of The Timbergram in the coming years. One of my favorite features of the newsletter — announcements about new additions (babies and fur babies), special birthdays and anniversaries, and the other monumental joyous moments shared with neighbors — will continue. And, with your help, hopefully, expand. (Send in those submissions folks! We love your grandbabies almost as much as you do!)
While Alison works to make the print edition of The Timbergram even better, I’ll still be assembling the (relatively new) email version and making sure it lands in your inbox every other month. Not on the list? Sign up at timbergrove.org to supplement your hard copy delivery.
Of course, The Timbergram would never be possible without the help from our many volunteers who submit committee and area news updates. I’ve been especially grateful to Darlene Wayt, Traci Riley, Pete Davies, Jeff Wayt, Chris Daigle, Jonathan Nassar, and the departed Lorraine Cherry for their generous gift of time to make the newsletter what it is.
And, when you see Alison, her husband Brian, and their pooch Birdie walking the streets, please be sure to say hello. I know she can’t wait to get to know you and happenings around the ‘hood!
