The Boathouse in Wayne will be rockin’ October 22nd as AML celebrates our first birthday!

The Boathouse in Wayne will be rockin’ October 22nd as AML celebrates our first birthday!

It’s our first birthday! One year ago on, Sept 30 2008, I launched Philly’s first emagazine. It has been one awesome experience. AML has grown so much in its inaugural year and I am proud to say we now have one of the top Facebook Fan Pages in the Delaware Valley. In addition, 1200 followers on Twitter are keeping up to date with AML daily!

Yet, AML is not about one person behind a business as I, myself, am the ePublisher…AML is about the people across the Delaware Valley who have created this great community, sisterhood, friendship, business connection and more through AML. I have seen AML work its magic in so many INCREDIBLE ways-connecting great, talented and inspirational people through our events, articles, Facebook, Twitter and more.

I think our tagline says it all: ‘Living and Loving Philly’s Main Line.’

What it really means is: We are connecting the Main Line and Philly region one click at a time. Through AML’s Facebook Fan Page, and parties you are just one click away from meeting a great friend, business partner, new client, old high school pal, finding a solution to your family’s needs, hearing about awesome community events…you name it! The opportunities with AML, as the new face of community connection across the Delaware Valley, are endless!

Wings and Weyerbacher!  Weyerbacher Brewery is the official craft beer of AroundMainLine.com. The party will include $3 drafts of Hops Infusion and Weyerbacher’s delicious seasonal Pumpkin Ale.

Living here my whole life, I love the Main Line and the Delaware Valley and there is nothing I get more satisfaction out of then celebrating this great place we call home together.

Publishing this emagazine has made this past year the most challenging, albeit rewarding year of my life. So, now it is time to CELEBRATE! I was really pumped when I approached the great people at the Boathouse in Wayne-owner Bill Weber and manager Heather Gilbert. Turns out, it is Boathouse’s one year birthday as well. So, we put our heads together and decided a dual birthday bash on October 22nd would do.

There are many people who have been so supportive this wonderful first year. And, I would like to personally thank them. Please consider these businesses that have been an important part of AML’s success.

Vance Bell: I am privileged to be working with one of the region’s top web designers, Vance Bell. Vance, based in West Philly/University City, has been instrumental in translating my vision of an e-magazine into AML. His industry knowledge of web design and development is extensive and his business insight and daily strategic consultations are invaluable to our continued growth. Vance is reliable, personable and has fully vested his time and energy into AroundMainLine.com.

Fox Rothschild: Kudos to my amazing IP attorney team of Rob Walper and Mark McCreary of Philly’s Fox Rothschild. Rob and Mark have done an outstanding job working with AML since the summer of 2008. They are detailed, timely and thorough and extremely knowledgeable about the world of online publishing.

Bernadette Uzcategui: Bryn Mawr’s Bernadette Uzcategui is our birthday party guest of honor! Bern, who is the owner of BUP Photography, has been with AML for over nine months. Her charming demeanor, sweet personality and tireless work ethic are what make Bern such a special person and a great businesswoman. I feel so grateful to have met Bernadette and everyone who works with her sings her praises. Look for Bernadette to arrive in a Secrets Limousine outside Boathouse!

Maryellen Bowers’ (cakesandcandiesbymaryellen.com) popular mini cupcakes have become an AML event staple with an enthusiastic following among our fans!

AML Staff Photographers: In addition to Bernadette, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with so many talented photographers across the Delaware Valley. Many thanks to April Ziegler, Stacey Granger, Kristen Hudson-Nichols, Marie Labbancz, Heather Berkenstock & Vida Carson. This fantastic group of women is a total delight to work with and each exceptionally gifted. Thanks ladies for all your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm!

Weyerbacher Brewery: Bob Fauteux and his team at Weyerbacher have supported many of AML’s events over the last year. Besides being a great group of men and women, Weyerbacher (based in Aston, PA) makes some amazing, yummy craft beer. We will be serving Weyerbacher’s Hop Infusion and Imperial Pumpkin Ale (yum!) at our party at Boathouse. Also, Bob will be on hand to meet and greet our partygoers and talk about the great line of brew Weyerbacher offers.

Maryellen Bowers: If you have been to any of AML’s parties (Launch Party, Be Mine on the Main Line, Pillow Talk), then you know the hit of every AML event are the gourmet cupcakes offered to our guests. Maryellen Bowers is the ROCK STAR of every party with her delicious, fresh gourmet mini cupcakes. Maryellen, based in West Chester, is the owner of the very successful bakery called Cakes and Candies by Maryellen. Every attendee of our birthday bash will have a chance to have free samples of her wonderful cupcakes (pumpkin, lemon, chocolate chip and more!).

Secrets Limo: Owner Frank Phifer and his great team at Philly’s Secrets Limousine have been a staple at every AML event. Our favorite driver Chuck Micewski offers top notch customer service and is an AML family favorite! Secrets Limo is the official limo company of AroundMainLine.com. I can’t say enough about this amazing company and the great joy they have brought to AML. Chuck will be arriving to our birthday bash with our special guest Bernadette Uzcategui and friends and family in tow. Look for the black Asanti Charger Limousine outside, you won’t be able to miss it!

There are many people to individually thank, including our 650 plus Facebook Fans, our fine advertisers and clients and those who we have had the pleasure to meet this past year. So, we extend our gratitude to all of you!

I look forward to seeing all of you with your friends and family (children are welcome!) on the 22nd, the party details are below.

Our success is because of your amazing support and friendship. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerely,
Sarah Lockard
