Editor’s Notes

December 2017/January 2018

It’s the December/January issue, which means it is our annual “Holidays” edition. Some of our articles focus on how our contributors celebrate the winter holidays, or spend the winter in general. We also have lots of community news and event coverage, thanks to our intrepid reporters and photographers.

When you read the next issue of Boyle McCauley News, it will be 2018, just one year away from our 40th anniversary in 2019. We are in the beginning stages of planning a gala event to mark this milestone, as well as help raise funds to keep the paper financially viable. More details on that, as soon as they are available!

Speaking of fundraising, we’re also brainstorming new and creative ways of raising money, in addition to our advertising and casino. We welcome your ideas. Please send them to editor@bmcnews.org. That is also the email address to contact me to find out about volunteer opportunities with the paper, like writing, photographing, and delivering.

Have a happy and safe holiday season!
