Are new to the Tri Cities? Do you own a fabulous business in the area? Do you love to support local?

Whatever your answer, I am so thrilled to present you with this amazing resource for all things local to the Tri Cities – St. Charles - Geneva - Batavia. Though I have lived here for 17 years, I remember what it was like when we first moved and had to find everything new again. This drove my passion for helping new residents find things to do, places to go, and great local businesses to use – which in turn helps those businesses to grow.

If you are a new mover, you can feel secure in knowing I have interviewed every business partner in this magazine to be a trusted source for you. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

If you are a business that would like the opportunity to be in front of new residents, let's set up a meeting and talk!

Enjoy! Candice Ellensohn
