Lee’s Summit Lifestyle: November Issue

Article by Staff Writer

Welcome to the new digital home of Lee’s Summit Lifestyle

In our November issue, we take a look at gratitude. It’s a game-changer in so many areas of life. We explore how those in our community have faced challenges such as a car accident to  cancer, and we share a few stories of locals who have found ways to give back. 

We hope that you are inspired this month by their perseverance and dedication. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
