Welcome… to our 26th issue of CK Senior, this is it… you’re looking at our latest copy right now!
We hope you enjoy this issue and thank-you for picking us up and taking us home. A BIG THANK YOU to all of our advertisers and contributing writers for their support; we couldn’t do it without all of you!
Early spring is one of the nicest times of the year, especially after the long snowy winter we just experienced. Everyone is ready to lose the boots and the big coats, and bring out their spring attire. The spring flowers are peaking through the soil now, and it won’t be long until we are surrounded by colourful trees and plants. Everything is fresh and new, and everyone seems to have a little more skip in their step.
Our cover this issue is taken at The Glasshouse Nursery, which is a landmark for Chatham. It’s a great spot to visit not only this time of the year, but any time of the year! It’s a dream that was started by a man named Martin some 50 years ago. It may have been Martin’s dream initially, but has now continued with his children, his grandchildren, and who knows … Martin’s dream could very well carry on in future VanRaay generations. Some things are just in the blood!
The other great thing this time of the year brings is that people seem to interact more with each other. We are out and about more, taking walks, participating in new activities, shopping… some of us volunteering and some of us… still working!
Ultimately, because of this, we are meeting new people. I always liked the saying by Steve Wright, “I like to reminisce with people I don’t know,” and I truly believe there is no better way to make a new friend.
Until our next issue, stay safe, happy, and healthy, and always remember … It’s alright to slow down, just don’t stand still!
