A ‘summery’ issue

Publisher's note by Amy Irwin

Oh, summer… I’m so happy you’ve arrived!

Although it seemed like a long, cold and wet winter and spring in Grey/Bruce, I really should be used to it by now. Regardless, I’m so ready for sandals and sun, barbecues and beach days, as well as trying out my Mother’s Day gift – a new paddleboard!

I think we have a very ‘summery’ issue for you. You’ll learn how to build the perfect sandcastle with tips from an expert sculptor, who provides simple ideas that I had never thought of! While working on the perfect sand creation, remember to document it! Local photographer Sarah Tacoma shares her tips for capturing those precious family moments with your camera.

After a busy day building and documenting sandcastles, you can stay up and take in the night skies. The local Astronomical Society explains some of the mysteries of the galaxy above. 

We also feature a educational story about the impact viewing smoking in the movies can have on youth. This unhealthy habit is portrayed on the big screen in alarming rates, and can have long-term effects you may not realize.

Finally, we’ve included an article near and dear to my heart by Community Living Kincardine & District (CLKD) about creating inclusive communities. I worked for CLKD over 10 years ago and I’m thrilled at how far we have come as a society since, through continued acceptance, inclusion and celebration of individuals with disabilities. This is an important read, with practical tips for becoming more inclusive if you have children, coach a team or organize a group or workplace.

Enjoy your summer because it will be back to school before we know it.
