After 25 or so years in and around the koi and pond trade, Cindy and I have decided it is time for us to take our leave.
We are happy that Lora Lee Gelles joined our team last fall as Managing Editor, and found the business to her liking. She has now stepped up and purchased POND Trade Magazine and will keep it coming to you in fine fashion as she has the past few months.
You may ask why now. For some time now, Cindy has been carrying the load because of a number of health issues I have suffered. She has done a superb job, but with Lora Lee in position to take over, we felt the timing was right.
As you know, we have always run our business out of love of the hobby and the great people in it, and we owe you all a huge debt of thanks for the support you have provided us.
I know you will enjoy the high energy and creativity Lora Lee now brings to the magazine and will support her as she continues to grow the depth of her knowledge and understanding of this industry. You can count on our strong stable of authors to continue to bring you the relevant, fun and interesting stories that have become the hallmark of POND Trade Magazine and I trust you will give her your assistance and feedback to help her best serve your needs.
*We are still around of course, and look forward to following your progress. You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, or 760-451-2255. Let’s keep in touch.*
