We did it! We made it through another Huron/Perth winter!
My family spent a lot of time at the arena, cheering on our daughter’s hockey team, as well as those of our friends’ children. I love how the community comes together at the rink, especially for those exciting playoff games! However, I look forward to fewer Zamboni fumes and the absence of snow, salt and ice, and I can’t wait for green grass and temperatures above zero!
My thanks goes to all of you who provided feedback on our Winter 2017/18 issue! We love to hear from our readers, so be sure to reach out and tell me what you enjoy, and if you have story ideas for future issues please touch base. Also, if you have a minute, please fill out our readership survey, which provides us with important information about how to best serve you! Find the link on our Facebook page or click here.
We have curated another awesome issue of Boomers for you this spring. We have a very informative health article about shingle and the new vaccine, the combative nature of the area’s earliest newspapers, and a feature on mindfulness and meditation. Our Travel feature takes a trek to Utah, which – as the story states – is somehow the forgotten destination when you talk to people about America’s western states. When you see the photographs taken by author Amy Muschik, you’ll start Googling the price of airplane tickets to Salt Lake City (at least if you’re anything like me!). Our Bucket List feature follows well-known Stratfordites Eddie Matthews and Lori Lupton as they explore the stunning fjords of Iceland and Norway.
As always, my gratitude goes to our advertisers, readers, writers and distributors for making Huron-Perth Boomers the premier publication for local adults 50+.
Have a wonderful spring!
