Stroll The Lakeside Area

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.

Tim Metcalf launched Stroll The Lakeside Area magazine (previously known as Lakeside District Living) in July 2016. After having much success with that product, he began the BeLocal Garland County in November 2020. In February 2021, Tim and Mary were married and now form the team that produces both publications each month.

Stroll The Lakeside Area is a publication that not only brings the residents together as they get to read about their neighbors, but also allows great businesses to be seen by and connect with these residents. Residents love it and look forward to getting it each month!

When they are not working on the magazines, Tim and Mary love to visit local restaurants, listen to live music, watch Nascar and football, and hang out with friends. They recently attempted line dancing, and the verdict is still out on that! Between the two of them, they have eight children and 10 grandchildren in four different states, so traveling is a given!

As the school year begins, we wanted to resurface a previous blog and give props to our teachers, who are diligently and selflessly making things happen! Many of our Area Directors came from a teaching background, and they found flexibility and financial freedom in a second career through local advertising sales and uniting their communities.
