Welcome To The Family

Welcome, and thanks for reading the inaugural edition of Our City Fort Lauderdale!

This is the eighth Our City Magazine. We already publish community magazines in Weston, Davie, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Miramar, Hollywood and Aventura. The Our City family of magazines are a bit different than most you might read. We are your source for local community and school news. In each of the markets we serve, our team of writers and editors cover events, accomplishments and news that matter to the people within our communities. We are deliberately and specifically a local magazine.

We are also quite proud of our positive voice. Don’t look in these pages for gotcha journalism, crime blotters or divisive political exposés; you won’t find them. However, do look for stories on some of the incredible, selfless acts our neighbors performed before, during and after the recent hurricanes.

We also aren’t a society magazine. Our Seen on Scene pages in the back of this magazine are more likely to show children trick-or-treating than business power couples attending a charity ball. We love receiving pictures featuring our neighbors out and about in the community. In fact, if you have pictures you’d like to share or suggestions for community news stories, please email our editor at LauderdaleEditor@ourcitymedia.com.

If you have a furry friend you are particularly proud of, send us a pic. We love showing off the cutest and most lovable pets. We also love to hear about our readers’ travels. Next time you go to an interesting place, take along a copy of Our City Fort Lauderdale, snap a pic with it, send it to us, and you just might see yourself in print – and win a gift certificate to a local restaurant or store.

Again, let us welcome you to the Our City Magazine family. We look forward to sharing the adventure.
