Editor’s Notes

November 2017

Welcome to November’s issue! Our theme this month is “Light,” and you will hear from a variety of our contributors about ways in which they stay positive while heading into the darkest time of the year.

One way I stay positive is working with the many wonderful volunteers we have at Boyle McCauley News. We are always looking for writers, photographers, and carriers. If you are interested, contact me at editor@bmcnews.org.

Our 40th anniversary is getting closer, and we are still planning how to celebrate this milestone. Please let me know what your favourite stories have been, and which community events we have covered that been most meaningful to you.

If you would like to help support the paper, and have a business in the area (or beyond), please consider advertising with us. You would reach more than 6000 people in the area, while helping us cover our operational costs. For more information, contact Vikki at ads@bmcnews.org.

Have an enjoyable month!
