Happy New Year!
Here’s wishing 2013 brings peace and happiness to all, and that we also all enjoy a prosperous year.
With the new year, changes will be coming to Lake Hopatcong News.
The first change you’ll notice is the name. We’ll be dropping the “Reviews” from our name and be known as Lake Hopatcong News. We will still write reviews but we want to be known more for our coverage of events and issues, rather than our reviews. You’ll see this change first on our website, sometime in the next month or so, and then again in February, with the printing of our first issue.
Speaking of printing, we will produce five printed issues this year, staying with the same magazine style format as last year. The February issue will be published on Thursday, the twenty-first, to co-inside with the New Jersey Boat Sale & Expo at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison, NJ. In addition to distributing that edition locally, we will be distributing that publication to all attendees of the Expo. Close to 10,000 people are expected to attend the four-day event and we want to show them all that Lake Hopatcong is a great place to spend an hour, a day or even a life-time.
The first summer issue will be published in time for Memorial Day, followed by a Fourth of July issue, a mid-summer issue in August and a season-ending issue on Labor Day.
You will still see some familiar faces, including Marty Kane, Lori Price and Bob Kays.
Marty, the president of the Lake Hopatcong Historical Society, will again offer up a historical look at life on Lake Hopatcong, gracing us with his stories, which are always in depth and very informative.
Lori will once again give us a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious look at summer life on the lake, taking us with her and her family as she navigates her way from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Bob, the man who knows all about wooden boats, will continue to keep us informed and up to date on events and features related to those beautiful vessels.
We will also be offering subscriptions for our print publications. For just the cost of postage, we will mail copies of each publication to your home, here in the lake region or anywhere in the country.
We are excited about the new year ahead. Please come along for the ride with us. We have room for everyone.
