Welcome to the Fall 2016 Edition of Willamette Valley Life!

Publisher’s Letter

Welcome to the Fall 2016 issue of Willamette Valley Life magazine! It’s always a pleasure to put this publication together and share the many great events, people and places the Valley has to offer.
    I have some exciting news to share: starting in January 2017, Willamette Valley Life will publish six times a year instead of four. Publication every other month will keep the magazine fresh and allow us to cover a lot more of the fascinating people and interesting destinations available throughout the Willamette Valley.
    Speaking of fascinating people and interesting destinations, this issue is chock full of them! There’s an interview I had with Willamette Valley blues music artist, Ty Curtis, as well as Sarah Horner’s story on master Falconer Ron Richter. Meanwhile, Tami Richards’ paints a portrait of the wizard of gizmos, Glen Mills of Glen’s Gizmos. And you won’t want to miss the Fall Festival Guide on page 11!
    I hope you enjoy this issue. From everyone here at Willamette Valley Life, we wish you and yours happiness during the coming holidays!
