I’m going to be honest, I’m a fair-weather type of girl. While I want to love winter – and each year I make big plans to go skiing, snowshoeing, and skating in order to fully embrace our own Great White North of Grey and Bruce counties – when I stop to think about it, the idea of partaking in winter is much more appealing than actually leaving my house.
Give me a good book, a great movie, some board games and my family safe at home, and I’m happy to “embrace” winter from inside. I have come to realize that this is OK, and I hope you had a chance to take advantage of winter in whatever way makes you the happiest.
We have some great articles again in our Spring issue of Grey-Bruce Boomers. ‘Unbelievable Utah’ will have you dreaming of warmer weather, so check out the amazing photos of this desert oasis on Page 6. Thank you to the Diabetes Grey Bruce Program for educating our readers on the signs and symptoms of diabetes, while informing us of preventative measures. Our history buffs will enjoy the article on the history of the railway in Grey/Bruce (Page 32), as well as the article about long-time harness shop in Priceville (Page 12). If adventure (or living vicariously through other people) is more your style, check out the article about local cycling enthusiasts who took part in the inaugural Gran Fondo Lake Huron (Page 16) last summer. Finally, as many of our readers are small business owners, or know small business owners, you understand how important it is to plan for properly setting up your business for when you exit, as described on Page 24.
As always, thank you to our advertisers, contributors and readers! It takes a village to support small businesses and we are appreciative of your continued support and belief in Grey-Bruce Boomers magazine.
