Editor’s Notes

October 2018

It’s October, which means it is officially autumn. By now, the leaves have already changed colour and are in the process of falling to the ground (if they haven’t already).

The season isn’t the only thing changing. We’re in th process of making a few tweaks to our website to make it more useful than ever. If you haven’t visited us recently at bmcnews.org, please do! And while you’re there, sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, bringing you information about our latest headlines and web features.

We recently surpassed 300 followers on our Instagram account, which often has exclusive photos from neighbourhood events. Follow us @bmcviews, and remember that we’re also on Facebook and Twitter (@bmcnews in both places).

If you enjoy taking photos or writing, and and would like to share your work in print or online, please contact me at

Have a great month!
