ZOOMER IS NOW A DECADE OLD THIS MONTH. But with the first baby boomer born in 1946, it was decades in the mak­ing. Our founder, Moses Znaimer, had one goal in mind when he launched the mag­a­zine – a new vi­sion of ag­ing, at once pos­i­tive, in­spir­ing and cel­e­bra­tory. He hired me, and I was hon­oured to con­vene a crack ed­i­to­rial team to bring his vi­sion to the page and on­line, through a blend of pol­icy and life­style con­tent c both rel­e­vant and as­pi­ra­tional, for an au­di­ence that we knew would be en­gaged. We are proud of the count­less sto­ries of rein­ven­tion, ad­vances in health and well­ness, travel trends, fi­nan­cial fi ad­vice and the lat­est in the worlds w of style, arts and en­ter­tain­ment. Mostly I want to thank you, the reader, for join­ing us then and con­tin­u­ing with us on this jour­ney.

The let­ter is framed and hangs in the ZoomerMe­dia board­room. Af­ter our first is­sue was pub­lished fea­tur­ing Wayne Gret­zky on the cover pho­tographed by Bryan Adams, we re­ceived this let­ter from the iconic Cana­dian jour­nal­ist Peter C. New­man. Mr. New­man is a man with a sense of hu­mour.

On a 2008 speak­ing tour to in­tro­duce the Zoomer phi­los­o­phy, Moses and I were thrilled to spot the in­au­gu­ral is­sue in Hal­i­fax.
