To Our Readers: In order for the Luminary to align with a traditional print schedule similar to other monthly publications, we will title issues differently moving forward. While this issue would typically be called the “January” issue we will now title the issue according to the upcoming month, hence, this issue is titled as February. Although the titles have shifted, the chamber will still produce 12 issues in 2020.
