With the summer in full swing, you might find yourself falling into monotony. While a typical routine can seem enough for you, do not fool yourself. Hopefully this issue will give you some opportunities to try new activities around the River Region. Be sure to check out our In Motion portion on Fly Aerial Studios. It is a great way to add some flair to your workout routine. Next, flip over to Reply Yes for some inspiration on all the hot sunglass trends. Immerse yourself in Montgomery’s nonprofit scene by learning about the Family Sunshine Center’s campaign, 100 Women Strong. The ambassadors of this campaign are giving their full support, energy, and resources to bringing a greater awareness to the Family Sunshine Center’s mission.
After three back-to-back issues, we are closing on the busiest time of the year for us and are very much looking forward to some down time before we welcome two new interns and crank up in full gear again. This issue might be one of my favorites because it is filled with so many things I love. Food trucks, fashion, amazing events, kayaking on the Coosa and Biscuits Baseball. While food trucks have been around for years, they haven’t been as prevalent in Montgomery but that is all about to change.
How exciting is our cover and feature story? Maxwell Air Force Base will host the most incredible air show commemorating the 70th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force along with the 100th anniversary of our country’s entry into WWI...not to mention that the Patrol de France hasn’t flown in the U.S. in 31 years! Don’t miss this free, family-friendly event on April 8 and 9.
Another year has come and gone and January always tends to be a little quiet with everyone focused on New Year’s resolutions and catching up from the holidays. Lucky for you, there are still several options when it comes to being entertained or getting involved in the community for those of you who aren’t slowing down. Check out our calendar of events and absorb all the great info in this issue, but don’t stop there. Visit our website and sign up for our email blast so you can stay informed of weekly specials, promotions and area happenings.
Our fun, festive holiday issue is a favorite to put together. It’s just so joyous! Flipping through the next few pages, you will find some beautiful local ladies modeling holiday fashion from our favorite boutiques and stores. This is just a glimpse of their incredible inventory so go check out their collections and be a show stopper at holiday parties this season. Another perk of working at RSVP is getting to know entrepreneurs and leaders at so many wonderful local businesses. Not only does the LIST introduce you to some awesome people you need to know, but our Table Talk feature highlights new restaurants, SOL Mexican Restaurante and Taqueria, Shane’s Rib Shack and Wharf Casual Seafood at Montgomery’s newest shopping center at Perry Hill Crossing.
We are happy to help kick off the second annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign for the American Cancer Society. This issue features Montgomery’s leading community men who will all raise money for the fight against breast cancer during the months of September and October. Read more about this campaign and the 21 men who are competing to be Montgomery’s Pink Man of the Year.
Summer has kicked into full gear and although it has been a hot one, it doesn’t seem to be stopping us from spending time outside in our gardens, kayaks, farmers markets and ball fields. If you look back at some of your past summers with regret over things you missed--the trips, the concerts and the people you never got to know - we hope this issue will remind you that every opportunity missed can be pursued again. RSVP is all about connecting you with people and places that are worth knowing.

Sometimes work just doesn't feel like work. Putting together this issue definitely made that true. The cover and feature story was inspired by last year’s successful 1960s Mad Men inspired holiday issue and casino party. After a few brainstorming sessions, we decided to take it back to the 70s and will be re-creating A Night at Studio 54 with a casino and disco New Year's Eve Bash at the Capital City Club. We hope the photographs throughout this feature will take you back a few decades and inspire you to get down with us on New Year's Eve.
