Publisher’s Note

Our Town CELEBRATES TEN YEARS!When we started selling ads during the hottest part of August in 2007, the idea of being here ten years later was only a dream. But through our faith, and God’s grace and provision that dream is now reality.

It wasn’t always easy, and even through the horrible economic down turn that started in 2008, we persevered and made it through. Because of our Heavenly Father we have been able to always pay our bills and owe nothing. And, because of Him we have many wonderful clients, colleagues, readers, and friends in the Paulding Community Magazine. These people – the “Our Town Family” – have encouraged and enriched our business and our lives, and we love and respect you more than we can say.

Through the pages of Our Town many stories have been told. The stories of families, groups or individuals on our cover, the stories of the wonderful Paulding businesses who chose to honor us with their advertising, and the stories of Paulding – a community and government of great people who are dedicated to making Paulding the best place to be. Being part of this amazing community after TEN years is humbling and we thank you for accepting us.

Our Town is our testimony of faith to FULLY trust God’s plan for our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” So, it is with praise and through our faith that we look forward to Our Town’s future with you!
