Celebrating 16 Years as Barrington’s Signature Magazine

Letter from the Editor

The Year We Won’t Soon Forget

By Lisa Stamos

A magazine should be a lifeline to its community—a definition that I recently read online. During this unbelievable and stressful year, our staff and partners in photography, design, and writing at QB have worked in earnest to deliver on that role, that promise. I am grateful to our loyal advertisers who were able to reach you safely this year, direct from Royle Printing to your mailbox. Our advertisers are the best business owners and providers. Dedicated, hardworking, and great at what they do. With their support, we never stopped delivering our lifeline to you within each issue.

We are excited to introduce you to Ruby Kular, an entrepreneur who combines the best of generations of Indian culture and wisdom, business savvy, and positive messaging to deliver a cosmetics line for women of diverse skin tones. When we sat down for our first conversation, we loved her story and the leaps of faith she took in her life and her strong desire to share that confidence with other women. She’s a great role model for girls and women of all ages.

There’s so much more in store in the pages ahead—holiday food recipes, the best wines to pair with meals, party ideas for home, and other interesting content. In the Our Town Series, we feature the Village of Barrington. We are keeping all of the town features online at qbarrington.com if you missed seeing yours in print.

All of us at QB wish you a safe and happy holiday season. See you next year!
