A Note From Samantha Yanks – A Silver Jubilee

Anniversary celebrations carry a lot of weight, in a wonderful way. Standing the test of time is important, surely, but to me staying relevant while doing it has the greatest impact. For me personally, it’s a year and a month of big celebrations. My husband David and I are celebrating our 20-year wedding anniversary this September, and Westport, Weston & Wilton Magazine toasts it’s 25th. Its easy to believe that Westport, Weston & Wilton Magazine has remained the most relevant publication in our towns of Westport, Weston and Wilton because it’s my deep belief that it has been on the pulse of what people want to know and always delivers it first. Carrying that mission forward in what is my third issue as Editor-in-Chief gives me a responsibility to the community — one I love. In this issue we do exactly what I have been reflecting on, celebrating the past and championing the future of towns experiencing great change. Our First Selectwoman Jen Tooker writes a Love Letter to Westport, our cover stars certainly talk about career and family, but moreover a palpable sense of what Westport means to them; and our feature by Jill Johnson Mann, who herself has been a contributor to the brand for 20+ years, on our 25th says it all: We LOVE Westport, Weston and Wilton. Why? Because our towns embody community, connection and celebrate the best people, places and things.

Join us as we embark on a year of celebrating our 25th anniversary!
