To get this first issue right, we at Moffly Media turned to the experts: You. We called together groups of Fairfielders—longtime residents, business owners, leaders in charitable organizations, artists, architects, parents, educators, and more—and asked them: What do you want in your hometown magazine?
We started with the name of our publication: Fairfield Living. Active. We think this represents all the changes and opportunities in this town—the vibrant spirit that energizes growth here. It’s what creates bustling shopping centers that regularly attract shoppers from Fairfield and neighboring towns. It’s what nurtures new businesses and restaurants and fuels two fine universities and excellent public and private schools for grades kindergarten through 12. It’s what supports a sophisticated arts scene that aims to exceed expectations by hosting exhibits of renowned artists and performances by musicians in all genres.
That vitality extends to the parents, who produce and participate in creative kid-friendly programs and events.
Through it all, town spirit fosters a dedication to keeping a respectful eye on the historic roots—founding families, landmark properties, cherished traditions and hearty philanthropic giving.
The list is endless. As an editor, that’s exactly what I want: So many story ideas, I can see issue after issue of features—meaningful, intelligent, beautiful—that matter to readers. This magazine truly belongs to you—you share your homes and gardens, you tell us about your efforts to help children with medical needs, you tour us around new businesses—and you are endlessly patient as we ask question after question.
As you share with us, you reach your neighbors and contribute to the story of living in Fairfield.
Whenever we at Moffly Media mentioned our intention, we heard, “It’s about time!” We agree. Let’s celebrate this wonderful, spirited community together.
