One of the things I enjoy most about my job is ACCESS to new beginnings.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Marjorie Thorpe, publisher of Coastal Design Magazine, as she outlined the plan to take her idea from concept to publication.
As she shared her vision with me, her passion and enthusiasm for the project were immediately evident. Flash forward a few short months and Marjorie was proudly handing me an early edition of the completed project – and it is amazing!
Marjorie and her talented team have truly created something special. Their hope is that the magazine will inspire readers with fresh ideas for their homes and gardens and promote in appreciation of the coastal region.
In her “note from the editor” address, Penelope O’Sullivan, editor in chief, States that this is “The start of something big “she goes on to describe this undertaking as only a New Englander can—she likens it to maple syrup making. “You begin with an idea then tap the talent around you to create a new entity, something unique and beautiful that stands on its own, yet reflects the essence of the folks whose work goes into it.”
She goes on to say that “a sense of community develops when you’re part of a team made up of people outstanding in their fields.”
Here at the One Hundred Club we agree with this sentiment. We have witnessed firsthand that “sense of community “ that exists when talented, passionate, like minded community leaders join in the spirit of social exchange. Magic happens.
The One Hundred Club is proud to be featured in the first edition and proud to have Marjorie, her husband Steve Thorpe, and Coastal Design Magazine as Members of the Club.
