Thanks for picking up the inaugural issue of Huron-Perth Boomers, a free, quarterly magazine for local adults 50+ in Huron and Perth counties, as well as Stratford and St. Marys!
My husband Dwight and I are excited to bring you a high-quality, local publication that informs and entertains your area’s dynamic ‘Baby Boomer’ generation. You’ll soon notice our stories are written for local people, by local people, and will cover topics such as travel, health, community, finance and special features on your fellow Huron/Perth residents.
We were both raised in southern Bruce County and, after leaving to pursue our careers, we came home – as so many do – to raise our two girls, aged eight and five. Since 2011 we have published Grey-Bruce Kids, a free magazine for parents and caregivers in Grey/Bruce. In 2014 we launched Grey-Bruce Boomers to great reviews, leading to our expansion into Huron/Perth with this first issue today.
By definition, a Baby Boomer is someone born during the post-Second World War baby boom, from 1946-64. But a Boomer is so much more than that. Today’s Boomers care about their communities and want to leave the world a better place. They want to fulfil their dreams and make the most of their time. They are a generation that has taken the world by storm and continue to be game changers, and we are honoured to share these local stories with our readers.
So enjoy the first issue and please support our advertisers, writers and distributors. You can engage with us at www.huronperthboomers.com, on Facebook and via Twitter @HrnPrthBoomers. We love when readers share story ideas with us, so let us know what you’d like to read in our Summer issue, which hits the street June 1. Huron-Perth Boomers is your magazine, and I look forward to you joining us on this journey.
