Summer fun and activities are slowly fading into our memories as the hustle and bustle of fall are fast upon us. Regular work schedules, school, sports, evening and weekend activities have us constantly on the move. Welcome to the autumn 2017 edition of South Shore Magazine, as well as our annual Star of Excellence Award issue. The businesses that you will see on the following pages have been awarded the Star of Excellence Award for their achievement of superior service and product 365 days a year. Day in and day out these businesses show that they are stars and put their best foot forward. Let them know how much you appreciate what they do for the communities that they serve. We have some great articles in this issue. Our front cover and feature article is about one of the crown jewels of the south shore: World's End Reservation, which is celebrating 50 years under the stewardship of The Trustees (many of you may recognize the organization as The Trustees of Reservations). World's End has been a longtime favorite place for me to walk and clear my head. As soon as I walk over the bridge, my stress flies away! The Trustees group manages many, many properties all over Massachusetts. I recommend becoming a Trustees member and visiting as many as you possibly can. The properties are all unique in their own way and make for great day trips and some possible overnights. The membership cost for a family is extremely reasonable, and you will create some wonderful memories of visiting and exploring these spectacular properties. We also have another great and humorous article from Erica Ford Sweeney. I would also like to make note that she is our new Editor for South Shore Magazine. Medical and recreational marijuana have become legal here in Massachusetts. Learn more about a local business in the marijuana industry: Ermont and their facility located here on the south shore. Our friends at Montilio's have been CRAZY busy after the feature article last spring on their traveling wood fire pizza ovens - in fact, they have acquired second pizza oven that is on the road, and they have a third one on order. Their beautiful mobile pizza oven is a great idea for your event or party!! We have a short article on the acquisition of O'Brien's Bakery and Jordan Marsh Baking by Montilio's. Learn more about this south shore institution. After a trip to Montilio's you might be thinking about how to burn off some of those calories! Check out our annual article from Country Ski and Sport and learn ideas for the upcoming ski season, as well information about seasonal rentals for kids and family. Now in the third quarter of 2017, we are nearing the beginning of our 18th year in publication. I would personally like to thank EVERYONE: clients, art directors, writers, photographers, printers and, most importantly, our readers for all of your business, hard work and positive feedback for South Shore Magazine.
