PUBLISHER'S NOTE A Thank You! s we enter the month of Thanksgiving, I would like to take this moment to say thank you from our entire Gazelle STL family to yours. In January, Gazelle STL transitioned from a bi-monthly to a monthly publication. We were worried about whether we would be able to fill 12 issues with riveting content for our sassy, sophisticated, savvy readers, but we quickly realized that we were reaching even more people and receiving way more content than we could possibly use. What a delight to know that our efforts to connect with you were well worth it. Thank you for embracing us! To all who have opened their hearts and lives, thank you for allowing us to share your stories. To our readers, we cannot thank you enough for continuing to empty our grocery store racks! We also appreciate the calls and emails to let us know that you enjoy the content, and to offer your suggestions on how we can be even better. Your feedback makes a difference in our decision- making. Each month, our team works very hard to continue being innovative, bringing you a fresh magazine that is different from what is already on the market. Of course, we cannot do all of this without our amazing advertising partners. We appreciate your trust in our brand. It is our pleasure to help you reach your targeted audience through our loyal and rapidly growing readership. May your Thanksgiving holiday be filled with joy, Cillah Hall Founder and Publisher 10 GAZELLE STL
