Letter from the Editor

Mary McCandless

When we decided to bring Women of Upstate NY magazine to Central NY, we never expected the overwhelming excitement that we received. We hope you enjoy reading the articles about the ordinary women who do so many extraordinary things. Our goal is to have you take a little something special away from everything you read.

We want to extend a special thanks to our contributors who have so graciously provided you with great information on Health, Nutrition, Travel and more. Look for many great articles in upcoming issues.

We look forward to bringing you fresh and exciting stories, information, and fun. If you are one of these extraordinary people making a difference or know that person, tell us, we would love to know your story. Email us at editor@womenofupstateny.com
