Meet the Best of Woodbury 2019

A graphic that reads "Meet Your Winners, Woodbury Magazine Best of '19 Readers' Choice"
We celebrate the winners of our 2019 Best of Woodbury readers’ choice survey, and celebrate how wonderful it is to watch our neighborhoods, business communities and local amenities grow.

Have you ever thought about your community as a garden? We think the metaphor works pretty well. To a certain extent, a community (like a garden) is planned, or has parameters. Your community might be your city or your neighborhood; maybe it’s your school district or your church family; it might even be smaller, like your book club or your coffee klatch, or your fellow business owners on main street. Communities need attention and love to grow and flourish: a sprinkle of person-to-person connection (like water), the shine of media coverage or marketing for businesses (like sunlight), and solid, nourishing infrastructure and foundations (like soil).

In this special edition of Woodbury Magazine, we get to highlight some of the ways our community has grown this year, and celebrate Woodbury—the businesses you voted for that represent the best of the best. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Best of Woodbury awards! We’re happy to be in this garden with you.
