“New” Community Newspaper Boxes

  • Outside Boyle Street Plaza. Dan Glugosh

Boyle McCauley News has two “new to us” newspaper boxes! One is on 97 Street near Lucky 97, and the other is outside the main entrance to Boyle Street Plaza on 103A Avenue and 95 Street. Many thanks to Postmedia for donating them, and to Dan Glugosh and Adam for putting them in their new spots! Our Designer, Vikki Wiercinski, also spent a lot of time designing the decals and painting the boxes.

If you are looking for our original newspaper box on 95 Street outside of the Italian Centre, that one is now in front of Sorrentino’s – just a little bit south on the same block. We had to move it at the request of the City. Thanks again to Dan and Adam for helping us out with that!

  • Outdoor Way of the Cross – Due to the wet, cold weather on Good Friday, April 14, attendance was down at the annual Outdoor Way of the Cross from about 660 (in recent years) to only 300 at the peak. This year’s theme was “The cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor are one” based on Pope Francis’s letter laudato si that notes that poor people pay the greatest price for our disregard of taking care of the environment. We walked for the first time west of 101 Street in the shadow of Rogers Place. Text: Jim Gurnett Photo: Michael Hoyt
