Delivering neighborhood connections to your mailbox every month.

Welcome! Let’s get to know our neighbors.

We know genuine connections with neighbors next door and business owners down the street make for a more meaningful experience. And we believe getting to know people in our community should be simple. That’s why Stroll meets you where you’re at – your mailbox.

We are grateful to serve this amazing community.

Every month, we share stories from and about different residents within our neighborhood.

See below for a few of our recent favorites.

Meet Your Publisher

Brett Kitchen

Greet is a monthly magazine reaching all 6000+ homes in the Del Ray community. The publisher, Brett Kitchen, had always enjoyed coming to Del Ray as a consumer and seized upon the opportunity to take it on as a magazine franchise when his friend presented the idea in the spring of 2022. “Del Ray has been the ideal community for a magazine such as Greet. The residents and business owners embraced this from the very beginning, and it has been wonderful to see them enjoying it and contributing to its success,” he exclaims. A Kentucky native who has been living in the DMV since 1991, his career spans a range of organizations including the World Bank, Peterson Institute for International Economics, and Environmental Law Institute. He holds a B.A. in business management and French from Transylvania University (Lexington, KY) and a Master's in International Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management (Phoenix, AZ).
