Kimberlee and I are pleased to announce the combining of Eye On Independence and Eye On Jackson Magazines into EYE ON MAGAZINE, a regional magazine with your favorite local articles and faces, with some new additions! Beginning with our July Issue, look for changes to come and a new drop list. We are having to lower our drop locations to keep our expanded distribution within a time efficient window. I will be posting our revised drop list, but for our June issue of Eye On Independence, pick yours up at: WRMC East Entrance, Pioneer Plaza restaurants and our outdoor boxes at US Pizza, Main Street, Harps and Kroger. Eye On Jackson can be found at our usual drop locations for June, but again, will be revised beginning in July. Thank you all for keeping us on your monthly reading list and your dedication to our local businesses and community organizations!
