Do you really know your neighbors? At Toombs County Magazine we ask ourselves that all the time. Just because our community is small doesn’t mean we take the time to get to know each other. By producing a magazine about the people and the events in our community, we hope to reconnect people, start dinner conversations, create a sense of pride in our area, and perpetrate the saying, “I didn’t know that.” Our writers tell us that “everyone has a story, you just have to pull it out of them.” It is our goal to find those incredible, heartwarming stories about the amazing people in our area and share them with the community.
The production of TCM is sponsored by local advertisers, and we like to remind our readers of that fact. For every page of ads there are at least two pages of article or community information. These hometown magazines are often used as a recruitment tool by the local chamber, Downtown Vidalia Association, and Lyons Main Street. The magazine is also placed in offices at the Georgia State Capitol.
TCM is currently distributed on a semi-annual basis. It is free of charge to local businesses and residents. The popularity of the magazine has increased exponentially in recent years as locals come to know it as “their” hometown magazine. Readers have told us that they never throw an issue away, keeping the current issue on their coffee tables until the next issue arrives.
The positive response we get from local readers, the excitement we see over a new issue arriving and the way telling someone’s story changes lives are the real reason we produce TCM. We are grateful to all our advertisers for making this community project successful!

Inside The Magazine
Our magazines are set apart by their content. Each issue features people, places and things that make the area a great place to live. You will find inspirational stories, historical pieces, pictorials, editorials and so much more. Each issue offers family friendly material and has something for everyone.
The pages of every TCM are filled with breathtaking photographs by local photographers. The magazine captures the unique aspects of living in Toombs County. Photos of individuals, families, businesses and groups make each issue exciting for locals.
One of the highlights of TCM is our collection of pictorial spreads featuring galas, benefits, dinners, events and fundraisers. This not only conveys the pulse of the town, but also connects people to what’s happening in their community. Readers find it great fun to see who made it into the Toombs County Magazine!
Placed throughout the pages of these magazines are professionally designed ads. They showcase the goods and services offered by local businesses. They also show readers which businesses support this quality publication. We support shopping locally, so we like to remind people that TCM would not be possible without our advertisers. They are the ones who ultimately put these priceless magazines into the hands of the community.
