Editor’s Notes

Volume 40, Number 3

Volume 40, Issue 3 marks a change behind the scenes here at the paper – and in my family, as you will read on page four. I would like to thank Karen Simons for stepping into the role of Proofreader during this difficult time. Karen has been our go-to proofreader during my mother’s many hospital stays over the past few years.

Another change is that our amazing Grace Kuipers has moved on from her role as Distribution Manager, getting the papers mailed to Boyle Street and delivered to our block carriers in McCauley. Thank you, Grace, for all of your hard work. Stepping into that position is Mike Siek, who volunteers with us in a variety of positions: writer, photographer, block carrier, and board member. Thanks Mike!

Remember to visit our website (bmcnews.org) and social media for more community news, event announcements, and extra features: Instagram (@bmcviews), Facebook, and Twitter (@bmcnews in both places).

Want to volunteer as a contributor or block carrier? Contact me at editor@bmcnews.org.

I hope you enjoy this issue. See you in June!
