Morgan's Note

June is a time of camps, swimming and snow balls. With that in mind, turn to our “Taking the Kids” feature for more than 10 local ideas from entertainment to education to keep kids of all ages occupied for hours to weeks. And if you need ideas for how to outfit them for these activities, look to What’s Hot for some adorable and useful pieces to add to their wardrobes stat.

This issue also marks the fourth annual “Encore!” feature, which maps out the past social season, complete with a “Mosts” list and featuring more than 50 of our local nonprofit events. There are so many notable groups making a difference in our city, and we and this magazine are only here because of the amazing work that they do. So read on and see where your favorite event falls, and which ones you want to add to next year’s calendar!

Remember that if you didn’t see your event listed in last month’s “Registry of Charitable Events” feature, now is the time to email me (Morgan@MyNewOrleans.com) and to fill out our easy online form: MyNewOrleans.com/CharitableEvent. We want to make certain that everyone is included, but I can’t promote what I don’t know, so fill out the form today!

Personally, my husband and I (and our amazingly supportive family and friends) are currently gearing up for the arrival of our first child, hopefully next month (in between beach trips, music festivals, showers, birthday parties and summer fun, of course)! We are over the moon and can’t wait to introduce him to so many of you whom we know and to see at these amazing events. We will be looking for you this fall!

In the meantime enjoy all that our city offers during the summer – and don’t forget your sunscreen!
