Dear Neighbours, ‘Tis the season to be jolly, and I’m feeling pretty jolly as I write the last editors letter for 2011. It’s been an amazing year for my family and I. I’ve been reflecting on all the things I’m grateful for this year and I’d like to share some of them with you. 

I had my first baby and I’m now experiencing the unique role of being a mum.

I was able to find a way to grow Townlife Monthly, in spite of the fact that I had just had a baby and was getting practically no sleep for the first 3 months of his life.

I’ve been very fortunate to have great businesses using this publication to promote their products and services.

There are many more things I’m very grateful for, probably too many to mention here. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single person that has picked up this magazine to read, completed the puzzles, contacted the advertisers, visited the magazines page on Facebook, and even advertised in it. You are responsible for shaping Townlife Monthly into what it is today and my role as the magazine’s editor will always be to give you the best community based publication. I hope you’ve also taken time to reflect on all the things you are grateful for this year. I wish you a very merry Christmas and may 2012 be a successful year for you and your family.. Warmest Regards,

Can a business exist without advertising? They probably can. Is it a good idea not to advertise? Absolutely not! Here’s how I see it.
