I’ve got some questions for our readers: 

How are you doing out there? Parents, did you survive the first few weeks of remote learning? Students, are you all settled with the new school routine? Neighbors, are you making sure to stay six feet apart?

I’m not a parent, but I’ve been keeping tabs on what I like to call the “school situation.” Two choices, two programs, different teachers, Zoom meetings, too much information – it’s stressful. Thankfully, you’re not alone. Arcadia is a strong community, and we’re all in this together.

The start of the school year is also a time to celebrate new beginnings, and we’ve got something new from Arcadia News. This month, we are unveiling the Arcadia Podcast – a brand-new podcast where we interview local businesses and people to get behind-the-scenes information on what’s going on in our neighborhood.

The first episode will introduce Lindsey Holt and Coley Arnold, creators of Junk in the Trunk Vintage Marketplace and owners of The Vintage, a gathering spot on Osborn Road where patrons can eat, shop and relax all in one place. The podcast will be available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts starting September 1.

September also means that we share all the vacation photos that neighbors sent over the past couple of months in our annual vacation summer spread. Many of you may not have had the opportunity to travel as much as last year, but it looks like you had a lot of fun either way! Check out the spread on page 36.

We love hearing about our awesome community, so please send your story ideas to editor@arcadianews.com, and as always, thank you for reading Arcadia News. 

Be well,
