I just finished reading the September/October edition of the Alameda Magazine and enjoyed the coverage on local musicians and the music here in town. I thought you might be interested in doing some additional articles on music in future publications, and you may not be aware of a couple of Alameda’s best-kept secrets, such as the Alameda Jazz Society, a charitable organization. I’d also like to toot my own horn as leader of And That’s Jazz, Alameda’s premier Dixieland jazz band.

Thanks to your intern, Meghan O’Leary Herreras, for the wonderful article “5 Fabulous Room Redos” [July/August 2005] that featured the work that my husband, Alan Maxcy, did on the tropical bathroom in the home of our neighbor Peggy Werner. We loved it. And I cried when I first saw it.You did a beautiful job of showing it off.
I just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous article “Invitation to the Dance” [November 2005].Wow, that was quite a lot of coverage. I’m sure it will go a long way in helping us to sell tickets and make Nutcracker a success.
We can’t thank you enough for your support in getting this Nutcracker promoted and off the ground. I think Alameda Magazine is a perfect forum for getting the word out about our production.
I thought the article was beautifully written and really captured the essence of what the organization is about, and I wanted to thank the writer,Wanda Hennig, for conveying my thoughts, hopes and dreams in such an honest and intelligent manner. This all started out as such an incredible leap of faith and has turned into the most heartwarming experience I have ever had because so many people from the community are pulling together to help us bring it to fruition. It is truly rewarding to know that even in these difficult economic and political times art can thrive, inspire and perhaps give us all some hope.
