Editor’s Notes

June 2018

It’s June, and in this issue we’re thinking about “Memories.”

It’s a fitting theme considering Boyle McCauley News is coming up to its 40th anniversary next year. What have been some of your fondest memories of the paper over the past four decades? We’d love to possibly revisit some favourite memories in 2019.

Volunteering is a great way to make new memories. If you like to write, take photos, or deliver newspapers, contact me at editor@bmcnews.org. You don’t have to be a professional writer or photographer to contribute to the paper – just an interest in the area and a desire to cover news and events going on here.

Also, if you’re involved in something going on in McCauley and Boyle Street, like an event or an initiative, that you think would make a great story, you can run your ideas by me as well.

Don’t forget to check us out online at bmcnews.org. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter (bmcnews) as well as Instagram ("bmcviews”:https://www.instagram.com/bmcviews). Have a great month!
