The Noe Valley Voice

December 2002 - January 2003

A blustery storm splayed branches and stirred up the leaves on 25th Street in early November, but the air was crisp and dry in Noe Valley by Thanksgiving. Temperatures were so balmy, in fact, some folks worried that Santa's reindeer might pass us by. Photo by Pamela Gerard

The Voice staff is grabbing the reins and shouting "Giddyup!" We're set to travel east and north of our fair valley in search of the best seats at holiday feasts. After that, there's a couch with our name on it--perfect for a long winter's nap in between 49er games. We think we've earned a break. This is the 10th issue of our 25th year of producing your favorite community newspaper. We love the work, but it wouldn't feel like December if we didn't do some goofing off.

We'll return refreshed and fattened in January and put together your February 2003 issue, due on the streets Feb. 1. Your deadline for all things of an editorial nature is Wednesday, Jan. 15. Your display ads need to be in by Friday, Jan. 17. (Call Steve at 239-1114.)

Maybe we'll see you during our mixing and mingling. If not, we wish you the best with a cheery jingling beat.
