Op­por­tu­ni­ties are plen­ti­ful

LifeStyle Wimmera - - FRONT PAGE - Edi­tor – Dean Law­son

Wel­come to The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser’s sec­ond Life­style Wim­mera mag­a­zine.

Rev­e­la­tions from pro­duc­ing our in­au­gu­ral spe­cial pub­li­ca­tion last year re­vealed a vast cache of un­told sto­ries about peo­ple in the Wim­mera, Mallee and Grampians.

In ex­plor­ing peo­ple in our com­mu­nity who had ei­ther reached mid­dle age, were con­tem­plat­ing or had en­tered re­tire­ment or were sim­ply look­ing for a way to en­joy their twi­light years, we dis­cov­ered a won­der­ful re­gional vi­brancy.

There are peo­ple who have spent a life­time ei­ther work­ing or vol­un­teer­ing to make their com­mu­ni­ties pro­gres­sive and healthy, oth­ers who have pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion by pur­su­ing their pas­sions and in­di­vid­u­als who are seiz­ing the mo­ment to ex­plore all life in the re­gion has to of­fer.

We have also used the pub­li­ca­tion as an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect on what helps make this part of the world tick.

An end of an­other long dry, heavy rain in the catch­ment has led to wa­ter flow­ing into the re­gion’s lakes and reser­voirs, pro­vid­ing a timely re­minder of how the sim­ple ap­pli­ca­tion of wa­ter can pro­vide an amaz­ing boost in re­gional con­fi­dence. In Life­style Wim­mera, we re­flect on this phe­nom­e­non.

We are de­lighted to bring you an­other in­stal­ment of Life­style Wim­mera and hope you en­joy this brief cul­tural snapshot of a crit­i­cal part of our so­ci­ety.

We also wel­come your thoughts and ideas for fu­ture pub­li­ca­tions.
