Well, we made it through another Grey/Bruce winter!
Though March often brings its share of unpredictable weather, I think we got off pretty lucky with our winter, despite dire predictions this past fall about a long, cold one. I’m always ready to welcome spring and its longer, brighter days, the first signs of green poking through, and nice rains to wash away winter’s salt, dirt and grime. Bring it on!
I think we have really brought it on in this, our Spring 2017 issue of Grey-Bruce Boomers!
Start planning this year’s outdoor adventures with our story about local birding habitats and tips for getting started with this fascinating hobby. Trust us, you’ll be spotting more than robins. Local historian Jodi Jerome also explores the history of the Grey Roots Museum & Archives, in Owen Sound. Knowledge is power when you know how to protect yourself and your loved ones against scams – there’s a lot of great information in our story about avoiding fraud. Our own Linda Thorn introduces us to the men who wowed crowds with death-defying tightrope walks across the Niagara Gorge, including two young men from Clarksburg. We hope you enjoy these stories – as well as all the others – in our Spring issue!
We are also proud to include the Community Foundation of Grey Bruce’s Vital Signs report in this issue – it’s full of information about six topics related to life in of our community, provides a snapshot of Grey/Bruce and is an important document to help move towards improving the quality of life of our residents. Be sure to check it out!
As always, thank you for reading and sharing Grey-Bruce Boomers, and for supporting our advertisers.
