Ah… spring! Although you may be reading this in March, which is technically when we welcome spring in Huron/Perth, it often doesn’t feel like it. Rest assured, those longer, brighter days are ahead of us.

It is often said that spring is a time of renewal, coming out of months of cold, dark days but I always liken spring to a ‘New, new year’ – when plans are being made for the year ahead. There are outside projects to prepare for, which seem to multiply under the snow, summer vacations to plan, new activities to sign up for (don’t forget that early registration!), and an overall sense of feeling hopeful, ambitious and somewhat alive again that coincides with the reappearance of the sun, grass and birds.

I’m thrilled to share that this issue marks the eighth anniversary of Huron-Perth Boomers, and I couldn’t be prouder that we have made it this far. I’m always grateful for our advertisers, writers and readers who continue to participate in each issue, allowing us to publish the only magazine for adults 50+ in Huron/Perth.

In this issue, we have something of interest for everyone! Jill Ellis-Worthington takes us along with her to the west coast to explore Victoria and Vancouver, while Ontario Home Health shares some great information about sleep apnea. Christine Wiedman also shares her expertise about creating cash flow in retirement, while local writer and history keeper Arlen Wiebe writes about the importance of recording your life story or that of your loved ones. We also get to know Goderich’s favourite son – Tiger Dunlop.

Thank you for reading and happy spring!
