The "Reader of the Month" Club
Congratulations to Marsha King of Mt. Vernon for becoming our Inaugural member of the "Reader of the Month Club"! For winning, Marsha will receive a 1-year subscription to the Journal for herself or a loved one/friend!
Thank you for being a Loyal Reader Marsha! We appreciate you! Here are some of the highlights from her entry:
“I have been reading and really enjoying your publication for a long time. My daughter passes them out at many stores in the area and I get my copy from her. She also gives me some copies to hand out at my high school luncheon group (which meets once a month) and to my friends at Bible Study.
“I enjoy looking for the swords (Treasure Hunt Contest) and I have won the contest several times. Sometimes I help friends look for the swords. Sometimes I hold the magazine upside down and sideways to find a sword that is really well hidden. Once, sitting under a dryer at the beauty shop, I was turning it all around and someone asked me what I was doing. A couple of years ago, I looked and looked and finally gave up. Come to find out that they had been left out that month!! HA!
“There are so many interesting items, and I read them all. I especially like the jokes and I often cut them out to send to friends who live far away. I enjoy the puzzles too. Several years (MJ writer) Cora Seaman spoke at one of the clubs I belong to. I find her stories very entertaining.”
A note from the editor, Ron Eaton: I have said hundreds of times over the years that our publication has the most loyal readers in the area, and we thought it would be fun to find and recognize some of the most fanatical and dedicated of those out there. We will feature the Reader of the Month on the Maturity Journal Facebook page, here on our website, as well as in the magazine itself*.
How will it work:
Readers may nominate others for the honor or nominate themselves. If you are nominating someone else, please include your name, address, phone and email (if applicable), as well as the same info for your nominee.
We are looking for interesting stories of why you love the MJ as well as examples of the depth of your dedication. In addition to your story, you can comment on some of the ideas below:
▪ How long have you read the magazine?
▪ Where do you pick up your copy and why there?
▪ How do you read it? a little here and there or cover-to-cover in one reading?
▪ What are your favorite topics and why do you like certain writers?
▪ Do you have any crazy stories or examples of your enthusiasm for the MJ?
▪ Do you look at ads? Do puzzles? Use coupons?
If you’re nominating someone else, tell us a little about them (life work, hobbies, things they’ve said to you about the Journal, etc.). A photo would be great as well (if adding a photo, please send the photo to MaturityJournal@gmail.com. Make sure it is labeled with the First and Last name of the nominee). All submissions will be kept in our files, so it isn’t necessary to re-submit a nomination for the same person more than once.
Above all else, we want the “Reader of the Month” to be a fun, collaborative way to recognize the most loyal readers of the magazine! Thanks for you’re readership!
