Editor’s Notes

August 2019

One of the great things about Boyle McCauley News is that it not only reports on the community – its events, people, and organizations – but it is also part of the community. Thanks to our recent fundraising efforts, we had a strong presence at the Heart of the City Festival at our table selling raffle tickets, as well as connecting with community members and even recruiting volunteers. We have also been enjoying a table at the Downtown Farmers Market in both the 104th Street and Boyle Street locations.

Speaking of fundraising, if you haven’t gotten your raffle tickets for the trip for two to Italy, time is running out. We’ll be outside Zocalo on August 25 selling tickets during Festa Italiana (formerly known as Viva Italia Viva Edmonton), and then doing the draw at 6 p.m. outside of the Italian Centre. If you would like to order tickets online, contact me at editor@bmcnews.org for details.

If you use social media, be sure to follow us: we’re bmcnews on "Facebook":https://www.facebook.com/bmcnews and "Twitter":https://www.twitter.com/bmcnews, and bmcviews on Instagram. We’re always posting community information and event coverage, so it’s a great way to keep up with what’s happening between print issues.

Take care – see you in September!
