One of my favorite things about publishing Appling County Living is the opportunity to showcase positive stories about people and places in the community. It is wonderful to highlight the positive stories of the community when today’s society seems focused on the negative and controversial issues. Appling County Living is a family-owned business. We were excited to add Sharon Courson to our “family” this year. Sharon was instrumental in selling ads for the magazine, as well as taking pictures and writing stories. She has become a vital part of Appling County Living and we are glad to have her on our team. Like me, she has fallen in love with the people and places of this incredible community. I would like to thank the wonderful people who have allowed us to feature them in this issue of Appling County Living. They each have a magnificent story and it is our pleasure to showcase them. As always, a very special “thank you” to the advertisers that make this publication possible. We encourage you to support these businesses and buy local.
