ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Every 16 to 18 months, the Albany Chamber of Commerce releases a new edition of a quality of life magazine. The newest edition is called “There’s Only One Albany” and highlights the people and things that are unique to the Good Life City.

On Thursday, March 10, 2016, the public is invited to the launch party for the new edition of the magazine.

The party will take place at the George Brown Exhibit Hall located at 125 Pine Avenue in Albany from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Folks will be able to get their hands on the new magazine and see its content.

Production for the new edition began last summer with help from local writers, page designers, and photographers.

According to Albany Chamber of Commerce Interim President Barbara Rivera-Holmes, the magazine is a great tool for tourists.

“Albany has a $221 million tourism industry. So with this magazine, what we do is place it in all of our hotels to ensure that every visitor to Albany is reading some things that our very special to our community,” Rivera-Holmes says.

The magazine will also be distributed to waiting rooms and hospitals all across the city.
