New Magazine West Michigan Woman Debuts E-mail
by GRNow.com staff

Screen shot 2012-07-27 at 1.44.41 PM A new local magazine devoted to professional and influential women is ready to make its print debut. 'West Michigan Woman' celebrated its soft launch online in January and will begin mailing issues to subscribers in August. Every other month, the publication will cover topics related to wellness, careers, family, style, finance and more, as well as profiling a prominent local woman in each issue.

The idea is the brainchild of Grand Rapids-based Serendipity Media, LLC, a company that has focused on printing national magazines for the last ten years. "We do national tourism publications, association work, and specialty publications. The one thing we hadn’t done was a local magazine," said Serendipity publisher Kasie Smith. "Women today are empowered by connecting with other like-minded women, but often connecting with them is the challenge. The goal of West Michigan Woman magazine is to be a publication that provides local, timely, and relevant content to professional and influential women in our community, and include personal stories from other women in West Michigan."

The Lafayette House B & B to Open in Heritage Hill E-mail
by GRNow.com staff

469385_342609452483770_255238425_o Grand Rapids' historic Heritage Hill Neighborhood will soon welcome a new bed and breakfast, The Lafayette House. Located on Lafayette NE between Fountain and Lyon, owners Skyelar & Todd Hoort hope to complete renovations and open the 138 year-old home at the beginning of October.

The home has a varied past, one that directly crosses paths with owner Todd. Originally constructed by lumber baron Emmon Ware for his family, the building eventually became a parsonage for the Park Congregational Church in the 1890s. In 1910, it was sold to Edward Frick, vice-president of Judson's Groceries that was headquartered in the building now occupied by The B.O.B. (and inspired the name for Judson's Steak House). By the time Todd's parents purchased the home that he grew up in the 1970's, it had been divided into apartments for nearly 40 years. After moving away to attend college, Todd and his new bride Skyelar moved back in May with the dream of transforming it into a bed & breakfast.
