Horizons Magazine Out Thurs. Feb. 23

Each year at this time, the Niles Daily Star and other local newspapers publish a special insert, which features stories and pictures of the people and things to do in the area.

This year the new 114-page magazine has been redesigned with more graphics and photos.

"The publication features stories about people in southwest Michigan shaping the landscape of the region. Divided into six sections — agriculture, education, people helping people, business, trends and social networking — Horizons 2012 looks at everything from Zumba classes and healthy eating to the medical marijuana craze and boom of the craft beer industry in Michigan."

Several members from the Friends of Silverbrook were interviewed about local genealogy activities for the "Trends" section of the magazine.
