When Hanover Magazine launched in 2015, I noted that our infinite mission was to provide well-reported, well-written stories and tidbits that reward your serendipitous flip of every page.
That mission holds true.
I have had a blast learning about the borough’s history, unsung heroes and visionaries. Ila Vidyarthi, Pastor Bill, Representative Kate Klunk, Diana Klunk, Debra Smith, Barb Geesey, Paul Hagarman, Jane and Michael Rice – these are just a few of the people featured in this magazine who strengthened my sense of Hanover’s heart.
The annual parades, Chalk it Up, Sip &Stoll and the poignant wreath ceremony at Mt. Olivet Cemetery to honor veterans each year are, for me, events that capture the heart of Hanover.
After this issue of Hanover Magazine, I will shift from leading the magazine, as editor, to joining the team of journalists who help produce it. I’m at a point in my life when receiving a call from an editor rather than making calls as an editor sounds heavenly. I can’t wait to unearth and tell more stories, especially with the reporters whom I have respected for so many years.
Jim Rada, who helped launch Hanover Magazine, will move up to take the lead as editor.
Jim is an award-winning writer who has written thousands of articles and 20 books. His articles have appeared in 130 publications, including Frederick Magazine, Boys Life, and Pennsylvania Magazine. He also has six years of experience as a newspaper editor.
Jim lives in Gettysburg with his family.
It has been both an honor and thrill to launch a magazine
about Hanover and to watch the publication’s popularity grow.
It will be an equal honor to write for the magazine, to become
what journalists call a buried lead.
