2019… “People Doing Great Things!”

Pstreet-News-CoverContributed by Sarah Cook – Publisher. As I sit, bundled up in my nice warm office / Livingroom contemplating my topic for our first 2019- ‘Winter issue’- it hit me like the freezing air on my face, when (or if) I ever leave my cozy abode. Every year, even after living here in Cabbagetown for 24 years, I’m still in shock that February, even March is still ‘Winter in Ontario!’

 
Victoria BC, the ‘Garden City’, where I was born and raised… the daffodils are in full blossom and the Cherry trees are about ready to burst open.  Meanwhile here in Cabbagetown, it’s snowy, slushy, and subdued.  Apparently Wiarton Willie says an early Spring – I’ve never wanted that groundhog to be more accurate!

 
My reminiscing then went to Spring…real Spring, here in Toronto and back to reality, no more hibernating. Our big news for Spring and 2019 is…The Parliament Street News is changing its format- just a little twist … We’re now looking for editorial all about “People Doing Great Things!” …paying it forward.

 
Do you know of someone “DOING GREAT THINGS”?  A neighbour, a friend, a co-worker, a company, even a family member, anyone who’s doing, or has done something wonderful. Why not write a short article about what they’re up to that’s “great”?  Along with your short stories, we’re also looking for your fabulous photos to go along with your feel-good editorial.

 
Send us your editorial, along with a high-quality photo or two.  Your family, your friends and your neighbours will get to enjoy a fun story about someone we might all know; won’t that be great!
