‘Tis the season

By John J. Tassoni, Jr.

As we celebrate the holiday season, and offer best wishes for the new year ahead, we reflect on the people and events that have made this past year one of the best ever.

For The Smithfield Times, a world of thanks goes to our readers, advertisers, employees, and business associates.

Since purchasing the magazine in 2014, I have had the pleasure to meet many of our readers and speak to them about what they would like to see in the magazine. I appreciate their input and look forward to sharing more stories with you in the new year.

I have also had the opportunity to work with many of the business owners in the town and surrounding areas, who are committed to providing quality, specialized goods and services to the community. We thank you for your continued loyalty to advertise in the magazine, support your business endeavors, and hope that our readers will consider shopping locally this holiday season.

Our organization is also fortunate to have dedicated people who work hard to produce a great magazine that the town can be proud of. For their efforts and wisdom, I am truly grateful.

From my heart, here’s wishing that your holidays be filled with cheer, warm memories and happiness.
