Letters to the Editor [Spring 2016]

Dear Erica,

My wife and I moved to Harrisburg from Montoursville a while back due to a job promotion and transfer.  Several of our physicians have your magazine in their waiting rooms. We have been impressed with the quality of the articles, the photographs and, believe it or not, your advertisers. 

Subscribing to the magazine guarantees us the opportunity to read and enjoy the entire publication, see what is happening around the area and then attend some of the fairs and festivals, and revisit old “stomping grounds.” We also try to patronize your advertisers. And, if we purchase a subscription it helps you folks maintain the quality of the magazine, and actually stay in the publishing business. Congratulations on a high quality, extremely relevant publication we can actually hold in our hand.

Hi Erica,

I am from Bloomsburg but my husband and I moved back a year ago after living away for many years. We enjoy traveling throughout the Susquehanna Valley. I heard about your magazine from a friend of a friend and wanted to see what it is all about.  We love this area and look forward to learning more about it. I subscribed for two years because our area is always changing and has so much to offer. I am looking forward to my first delivery.

Thank-you so much,

Linda Artley

Hi Erica,

I just read through my first issue of Susquehanna Life and have already found so many places of interest for my husband and I to visit. We are both serious hobbyist photographers and this magazine was perfect for finding some areas that are new to us and not very well known. I love the ads for local businesses. We lived out of the area for many years and this magazine will help to acclimate us back to this area. I'm looking forward to the next issue.

Thanks so much,

Linda Artley,

Dear Erica,

We were able to read the article [Many Hoppy Returns, Winter 2015/2016] yesterday and must say that you did a wonderful job!  We are so thrilled that you were able to portray what we are trying to accomplish as a family. We have actually received phone calls last evening from people who have read this issue.  It was nice to see in print what our buyers think, as well! It was a pleasure working with you on this and we greatly appreciate the exposure you have given us.

Dear Erica,

Thanks for making my article and photos on #113 look so good!  And thanks for having an interest in the story of an underdog organization keeping history alive. From Project 113’s point of view, the article has already paid dividends, with people calling to buy tickets who learned about the rides by reading about them in the magazine and on your Web site. I have spread the link through various Facebook pages and the Web site, too.

Dear Editor,

I grew up in Sunbury and moved out of Pennsylvania in 1984. I now live in Milwaukee, WI.  When back visiting over Thanksgiving I looked at [Susquehanna Life] magazine at my sister's house. I still enjoy seeing what is going on in The Valley. I thought the magazine was very informative and high quality. I look forward to receiving my first issue and following things on-line. 

Thank you. 

Doug Schreffler, Milwaukee, WI
