Who would have predicted that I would be penning yet another pandemic Publisher’s Note, 18 months after the world first shut down “for two weeks.” The year-and-a-half since has been challenging on so many fronts for many people – everyone has been affected in some way.
A quote I heard that resonated with me is, “We are not all in the same boat, but we are all in the same storm.” I hope that your boat is keeping afloat and this storm will soon be over!
A bright light is that we are back in print! We transitioned to only publishing online last year and, while I was hopeful it would be just for an issue or two, we published five issues exclusively online. Thank you to our loyal readers and advertisers who kept us going – it was our honour to continue to provide our demographic with relevant, meaningful and local content during such trying times. Be sure to check out all our past issues online.
In this issue we are proud to feature a look back at stories of Grey County’s First World War veterans, courtesy of Grey Roots Museum & Archives. Online dating is a great option for those 50+, and April Taylor tells us about her experiences. Read about Saugeen Shores residents Tony and Sylvia Sheard who do amazing things with the Rotary Club locally and internationally. Finally, prepare yourself financially with Michele Mannerow’s article about planning for retirement, and learn more about the future of health care with Kylie Pike’s story that explains why now isn’t the time to reduce services
Thank you for your continued support of Grey-Bruce Boomers magazine, and may you and your family stay healthy and safe this fall!
