So Much Gratitude
The deadline for our November issue fell on Thanksgiving this year, so when I sat down to write my editorial, gratitude was on my mind.
We have a lot to be thankful for at Boyle McCauley News. We have benefitted from the generosity of people in the community and beyond through our Toss Us Your Toonies campaign. Visit bmcnews.org/donate for more information. Thank you for supporting independent community news.
As well, in late September we received financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage’s COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage, and Sports organizations. This funding will go a long way towards filling the gap until our next casino. We are extremely grateful.
As I mentioned in our previous issue, the paper’s Board of Directors had to make some difficult decisions concerning our current budget. In addition to ceasing the Canada Post mail-out to Boyle Street, another decision was to close our office and not have a physical space. We then received a generous offer from the Edmonton Community Development Company to share their office space. We are so thankful that we have a place to work, meet, and store our archives.
At the same time, we want to thank Miranda and Ken at Zocalo for being such wonderful landlords for the last 14 years. If you are looking to lease basement office space in the area, get in touch with them because there is a great opportunity now available.
