Canton is growing. New businesses are popping up in the historic downtown district and beyond. A city that has served area residents for 184 years is gaining new life.
Around Canton is keeping pace. With more than 20 years of tenure in Cherokee County, Aroundabout Local Media is increasing the distribution for Around Canton magazine to 25,000 with this March issue. We’ll mail 23,758 copies directly to residents of Canton, Waleska, Ball Ground, Lathemtown and Free Home, adding to our current distribution routes in Holly Springs, Sixes and Hickory Flat. That gives us the widest reach of any monthly community magazine in the county.
The good news for our advertisers is this: the cost per thousand homes reached is $10.90, which makes us 26 percent less expensive than any other monthly community magazine in the county. For a lesser price, you get more impact, thanks to:
- Around Canton’s sleek, colorful pages.
- Design and magazine publishing experience that exceeds 50 years.
- An editorial staff with more than 65 years of journalism experience.
- Our reputation for providing continual updates on new businesses, ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings.
The good news for our readers is that more of you will get the magazine, and we’ll be expanding our school and community news coverage to include events in our new distribution area.
We’re committed to bringing the people, places and news of Canton and surrounding communities to your home each month. We hope you enjoy the special photos from this year’s Night to Shine, hosted by First Baptist Woodstock for the Tim Tebow Foundation. You may recognize a few Canton residents on page 16.
A very special event is planned for April 15 – turn to page 18 for the details. Here’s a hint: it involves a four-mile trek from the current Northside Cherokee Hospital to the new facility to symbolically move from the old to the new.
Canton resident Steve Kasha has made more than 30 trips to Kenya – Susan Schulz tells us on page 46 why he keeps going back.
