publisher’s note HELLO FROM KRISTI

It’s hard to believe that Welcome Home, Rio Grande Valley is entering its ninth year in business! There is no doubt we love the work we do, but it is the people we meet along the way who have made the last nine years so special. I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you--thank you for your support and enthusiasm! Without you, we would not be where we are today. It is so exciting celebrating nine years with you all. That means our 10-year anniversary is on the horizon--something I wasn’t sure I would ever see in the very beginning. Rest assured, we are already planning our 10-year anniversary party, and you are all invited! Many of you have been with us since day one, and watched us grow from a simple annual directory to where we are today, with more products and services than I have room to list on this page.

In the beginning, there was a great number of people who thought I was downright crazy. But I had a vision and a team of cheerleaders who kept me focused. With the same energy and enthusiasm as I had in the spring of 2008, I want you to know I have a new vision of what the next 10 years will bring and what goals I want to reach before our 20th anniversary. The Winter Texan community is so very important to our region, and we have a plan to keep you coming back, year after year, and to allow us to continue to be of service to you. Thank you for choosing the Rio Grande Valley. Whether you are a Winter Texan or a Converted Texan or you’ve lived here all your life, we want to continue to be a part of your Valley adventures. We’re just connecting the dots,

Kristi

On the Cover WINTER TEXAN LIVING

Welcome Home RGV Welcomes You Home, Winter Texans!!

W

e are celebrating our ninth year with some changes to our annual directory. This directory is about YOU, our Winter Texan friends, and what better way to demonstrate that than by starting with a directory name change--Winter Texan Living.  

We are also celebrating our history with you by having our previous directories’ cover models on this cover.  It inspires us to see how lively, active, and fun our wonderful Winter Texan friends are. We live in a magical place where the sun rises and sets in beautiful colors and where folks (like our cover models) can’t wait to get here every fall and winter from across the U.S. and Canada.
