It's Our Tenth Anniversary!

Smantha and children

Since the early days of PARIS!, staff and readers alike have thought of it as a showcase for the best of what Paris, Henry County and the Lake Area have to offer. And over the years it’s done just that. Our readers have learned a great deal of area history, enjoyed hundreds of local recipes, become acquainted with Henry Countians who have lead amazing lives and been exposed to local businesses that are second to none. They’ve picked up a number of car care tips, become more in tune with their gardens, gotten in touch with their artistic side, and found new ways to spend leisurely weekends.

Of course PARIS! has had it’s blue notes, as well. In one short decade we bid farewell to wonderful Art Nellen, one of the magazine’s founding partners. We also said goodbye to Gary Powley, who left this world much too soon. He worked along with Gaines Hedges, as the magazine’s fi rst advertising staff.

Staff meetings and writing were all done in an office that Gaines affectionately dubbed “The Fish Camp.” Susan remembered Art telling a friend, “It’s hard to think of this magazine as work. After all, we’re writing about a place we love, and our office is called The Fish Camp!” It was a great moniker for a place that produced its share of articles about the home of the World’s Biggest Fish Fry. But more than that, it reflected the laid back atmosphere that somehow came through in the pages of PARIS!

Eventually, when Susan was ready to move on to other endeavors, I became the keeper of PARIS! With our roots proudly planted in Henry County soil, my husband, Kyle and our daughters, Savannah and Addy Kate, invite you to enjoy the tenth anniversary of PARIS!
