Loyal readers of Society Social Calendar Magazine will notice some changes in this issue. We are excited to announce that we are expanding Society to the Westside; the communities of Pacific Palisades and Brentwood that share the same philanthropic values as Westlake Village and the Conejo Valley. I look forward to highlighting the events of their communities as we have for the past 12 years in Ventura County. I anticipate that Society will be as beloved there!
The additional noticeable change is the cover. Society has continuously featured original artwork on its famed covers. And that artwork, with two exceptions, has always been of an unrecognizable woman. For the Westside launch issue, I have chosen to feature a portrait of music legend and Westside native Robby Krieger, painted by my dear friend Scott Medlock. I hope you enjoy this portrait of a very special person I am proud to call my friend.
Although the Santa Monica Mountains lie between us, we are two communities in kind. Our communities intersect. Given the mutual connections, I have chosen to continue with a single publication. While some events will be exclusive to a particular area, most will be of interest to all.
I am honored to continually recognize those who work to make ours a better society. It is my mission and my passion. It is very exciting to expand that recognition to include more events and the people and businesses that make it happen, and highlight their philanthropic endeavors that make a difference in our world.
Thank you for sharing in my passion!!
