In this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards contest, we had more voters than ever (90,000+ to be exact). Starting on page 51, read all about the top dogs—whose goods and services run the gamut from food to finance—and let it be a reminder of just how many reputable businesses our region boasts. There’s plenty more in the pages that follow, including “8 Ways to Reduce Your Breast Cancer Risk” on page 38, a roundup of local ways to celebrate Halloween on page 20, and an easy-to-follow itinerary for “A Perfect Day in Apple Hill” on page 19. Enjoy the issue, and remember to congratulate and support some of the winners mentioned in this month’s mag. Cheers!
what’s up Hoshall's Salon & Spa's newest mural of the Rainbow Bridge is finally complete! Artist Leah Currey captured exactly what the staff at Hoshall’s wanted to honor Folsom and the community they love having their business in. Folsom Palace, which serves Asian fusion entrées and has been a mainstay in its namesake town for over 20 years, opened a second location at 3941 Park Drive, Suite 10, in El Dorado Hills. To view their menu, visit folsompalace.com. The recently rehabilitated Orangevale Avenue Bridge has been selected as the American Public Works Association’s 2018 Public Works Project of the Year in the historical restoration and preservation category. The award recognizes excellence in management, administration, design, construction, and community relations. Popular Folsom home builder Woodside Homes donated 28 new backpacks filled with everything students need to succeed in the classroom. Adopt A Family Program of NorCal, the beneficiary of the donation, is a nonprofit staffed by volunteers, so every donation makes a huge difference for a child in need. Two local students were recipients of generous $5,000 scholarships from Golden 1 Credit Union. Congrats to El Dorado Hills resident John Rodriguez and Folsom resident Rachel Chu. Rodriguez, who attends CSU Sacramento and works two jobs, is entering his senior year studying general management and hopes to attend the Haas School of Business at Berkeley.
