Our FRONTcover story for this edition is all about Roanoke. We've done reports on the business networks at many of our communities over the past 70 issues, but this time, we decided to present a simple chronological listing of the major business impacts that built the City of Roanoke into what it is today. It's a story—a history; and it shows what commitment and investment and hard work can do for a place that has been labeled both "big enough... and small enough." A characteristic that is dependent on your perspective and, for the most part, what is important to you. From a business perspective, we'll always have plenty of work to do, along with plenty of opportunity. We're exciting to keep the momentum. Moving forward. Making our contribution. Improving. Doing our part to stay in FRONT.
As we've said elsewhere (and someone had the foresight to make manifest) we live in a place that's worthy of a star.
