Since 1998, The Bulletin Magazine has been delivered monthly, 10 times a year directly to the doorsteps of residents and business owners in East Gwillimbury and surrounding areas.
When I took over the magazine from Christine Benns (founder) in 2014, someone asked me what direction I was planning to take
The Bulletin in. All I could think of to say was, "I want it to be different than all the others. It should be the one thing you won't pitch in the recycling bin before you've read it." I hope we're succeeding!
Over the past few years, The Bulletin has evolved into something unique, interesting, and community-oriented. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, I hope you'll give us a look. This is your community and The Bulletin is your magazine. - Blair, Publisher
I wanted to be an editor or a journalist, I wasn't really interested in being an entrepreneur, but I soon found I had to become an entrepreneur in order to keep my magazine going.
