Editor’s Notes

April 2018

April is here, and hopefully by the time you read this the snow will be turning into a memory. The theme for this issue is “Freedom,” and I always associate spring with being free – especially free from snow.

We also have our usual gathering of community news and views, such as coverage of the annual Family Day Skating Party at the McCauley Rink, a delicious recipe from Yovella, and our usual line-up of columnists.

That being said, we are always looking for writers and photographers. If you have a desire to put some words together or take some photos for the paper, drop me a line at editor@bmcnews.org.

Our other major volunteer need is block carriers in the McCauley area – the great news is that all of our routes are currently taken! If you would like to be put on a waiting list if something becomes available, you can reach me at that same email address.

Have a great month, and don’t forget to check us out online at bmcnews.org.

We are always looking for new writers and photographers, as well as ideas for future stories. We also regularly need block carriers to help with the delivery and distribution of the paper. Email Paula with your submissions, feedback, ideas, and availability. We also ask that contributors read our Editorial Guidelines and that all volunteers read and agree to our Code of Conduct.
