Active Age excited for 2024

By Sharon Van Horn | December 29, 2023

I am delighted to have been elected president of  The Active Age’s board of directors for 2024. We have a dedicated group of officers: Susan Armstrong is the new vice president, and Diana Wolfe is continuing as treasurer. We are so appreciative of Tim Marlar’s leadership as president during the last two years and happy that he is staying on the board.

We are all excited to help lead this organization. We are proud of the editorial content that is delivered each month on topics pertinent to all of us who are over 55. The stories of the achievers in our generation are truly inspiring.

The Active Age is the largest print publication in Kansas, with about 57,000 papers distributed each month. When pass-along readership is figured in, that means it’s seen by around 100,000 people each month. It is a great advertising opportunity for businesses, so please give us a call if you want to reach a huge pool of potential customers.

None of this would be possible without you, our loyal readers. Your financial contributions each year are truly a blessing. Look at our “thermometer” on page 5. It is over the top for 2023! We appreciate your feedback in the form of letters, emails and phone calls and your participation in the contests we run during the year (like this month’s drawing for tickets to the Johnny Cash tribute show). We have some exciting new plans for 2024, so keep reading.

From the board of directors and staff, we hope your holiday season was a happy one and the new year is filled with good health, joy, peace and prosperity.
