Thanks, and a Boomer Bash Invite from the Publisher

Featured September/October 2017

As we approach our two-year anniversary of Northeast Ohio Boomer & Beyond, we have much to celebrate, much to be thankful for and much to tell you about toward the future …


Thanksgiving — a Bit Early

First off, a big shout-out to you, our readers — our faithful followers — for embracing this new magazine concept dedicated to “Better Living After 50” for Greater Clevelanders. You continually affirm that we are on the right track with Boomer & Beyond through your encouraging comments and “sold out” copies. By now you’re certainly wise enough to know that the best things in life are free.


A huge thank you goes out to our advertisers who have trusted in Boomer to deliver a powerful audience of intelligent, mature consumers. Our aim is to be a conduit for you to connect with passionate readers in a credible, often maligned but treasured medium — the printed magazine.


Many thanks to the Boomer Editorial Advisory Board for helping steer this ship in the right direction from the earliest planning stages to this — our largest issue to date.


Thanks to an incredibly dedicated, talented staff who have nurtured Boomer from birth to maturity with blood, sweat and tears.


What’s Ahead?

In the coming weeks, our e-newsletter will launch with engaging and timely stories that will link you to our website where a host of other information, resources and features are available. With our continued plan to stay with a bi-monthly publishing schedule for the magazine, our website, e-newsletter and Facebook platforms will continue to grow as a source of information and entertainment.


We’ve heard from many of our readers that you’re looking for fun, lively events with music and other entertainment for “your crowd.” We’ve listened, and we believe you will find what you’re looking for at our first Boomer Bash event coming this fall.
