Welcome to our first anniversary issue! Whether this is the first time you’ve picked up a copy of Grey-Bruce Boomers or whether you’ve been a reader since we launched on Dec. 1, 2014, thanks for reading!
Although there is always uncertainty when launching a new publication (our first magazine – Grey-Bruce Kids – is celebrating its fourth anniversary this December), we are not surprised by the feedback we’ve received in the first year of Grey-Bruce Boomers. Adults 50+ in Grey and Bruce counties are incredibly involved in their communities, well read but always interested in learning more, and love to travel. Yet they know how to slow life down and read something they value, cover-to-cover. So, as the letters and paid subscriptions (for people from as far away as Toronto who want to make sure they don’t miss an issue!) have filed into our email over the past year, we’ve been overwhelmed by the support in our community. This recognition, in no small part, belongs to the writers, advertisers and distributors who play the largest role in any success we have – without them, there is no Grey-Bruce Boomers!
In fact, because our first year has generated so much excitement in our region, we’ve decided to expand. We’ll be adding Huron-Perth Boomers to our suite of publications starting in March 2016, our spring issue. The new magazine will cover Huron and Perth counties, as well as St. Marys and Stratford. Our two Boomers magazines will feature locally relevant stories written by knowledgeable people in your community.
Once again, thank you to our readers, writers, advertisers and all those who distribute the magazine for making the first year of Grey-Bruce Boomers one to remember.
I am extremely excited for what the future holds, and can’t wait for you to join me!
