From The Editor: A New Decade, A New Beginning
A new year and a new decade are finally here! Now that the 2010s are in the rearview mirror, we’re excited to see where the 2020s take us, and here at Lavender, we’re especially excited to show our amazing readers what we have in store!
Now that a new year has started, it’s time for a lot of us to stick to those resolutions, and staying in shape is no doubt a popular goal. Whether it’s going to the gym, joining a sports team, or just going for a jog around the neighborhood, the Twin Cities have a lot to offer us in terms of staying in shape.
In our 2020 Sports & Fitness issue, we get to meet the brand new Minnesota Pride women’s tackle football team ahead of their April debut, and we also preview One Heartland’s exciting Over The Edge urban rappelling fundraiser event. On top of that, we present our annual Sports Directory, and we learn more about Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s SilverSneakers program for seniors.
And that’s not all! Our new arts writer Brett Burger debuts his Coming Attractions column, Carla Waldemar recaps her magical trip to Spain, and Steve Lenius profiles the Bi+ Us project.
So from all of us to you, we wish you an amazing and prosperous New Year and a fantastic decade too!
