Welcome to our July edition.
Is it me, or is time flying by? It seems like just yesterday that I wrote my first Publisher’s Note for Hello Country. And here we are.
It’s been a long shutdown, but I’m happy to report that all my interactions recently with local business owners and farmers in Grey Highlands have been extremely positive. There’s hope in the air and I’m so pleased to see so many smiles beaming through the masks that, I hope, will one day soon become a thing of the past - relics of a time we’d all be happy to forget.
It’s time to get Back To Business!
With that said, local businesses and farm stores are going to need our help. Whether you’re reading this at your cottage, at home, or on the farm, please consider what you can do to help support our local business owners and farmers on a long-term basis, because this isn’t going to be an overnight fix.
I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me who want to advertise because they know they need to get the word out and stay top-of-mind with their customers. If you’re looking to promote your business within Grey Highlands, please call me. I’ve decided to run a Back To Business promotion that I think will help folks get the word out locally without breaking the bank.
Thank you very much for reading Hello Country. It means a lot to me to hear so many of you who love the magazine and who go so far as to stop me on the street or in a shop to tell me how much you enjoy the publication. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. Even from the lady who told me I need a haircut badly. She was right!
Thank you for your readership,
Roger "Papa Country" Tumminieri
