May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.
- Irish blessing
We feel quite blessed for the opportunity to share another issue of Enjoy Magazine, and we encourage you to relax, grab your favorite beverage and learn a few new things about what makes Northern California Living so special.
Sometimes we overlook the history lessons that are right in our own backyards. Take a tour of Bidwell Mansion to learn about some fascinating folks who helped shape the community of Chico. While you’re there, tune into KZFR, a community radio station powered by volunteers.
Then meet Janessa Wilder, a former CIA analyst who has built something beautiful through The Euphrates Institute. She’s creating avenues of dialogue among diverse people, helping illuminate the common ground that we all share.
Some of the area’s newest, tiniest residents will benefit from the gift of literacy, thanks to Nick and Abby Webb, who found themselves in the neonatal intensive care unit when their twin sons arrived three months early. Because studies show that premature babies benefit greatly by hearing lots of spoken language while in the NICU, the Webbs decided to gather books – lots and lots of books – to share with other parents of preemies.
The North State is like a four-leaf clover for outdoors enthusiasts, and the Redding Sportsman’s Expo is poised to once again draw some 10,000 people to the Redding Civic Auditorium to explore the latest in hunting, fishing and more—check it out!
Wishing you the luck of the Irish, today and always. Enjoy!
