For the love of Hamilton!
Welcome to the November-December edition of HAMILTON CITY Magazine, or as we like to call it, the Holiday issue! Sure, there’s all manner of mirth and merriment — from food and drink to gifts and goodies, but there’s also a healthy and heartwarming dose of inspiration. From Emily O’Brien’s tale of redemption to Lena Bassford’s story of comfort; from community building to community singing. We hope you enjoy reading the issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
If you’re picking up HCM for the first time, welcome. Perhaps you received a complimentary copy as part of our rotating neighbourhood promotion campaign, or maybe you bought a copy from one of our independent retailers. Either way, we hope you will consider subscribing. For only $39, you get SIX printed issues delivered to your home or business via Canada Post … the best part is you’ll save almost 30 per cent off the retail price.
Or how about buying a gift subscription for a friend or family member? Just look for our ads in this issue for the QR code. Just scan, subscribe and you’re all set!
Still want to support the magazine and give back to the community? How about buying an ad for your favourite restaurant, mom-and-pop store or non-profit? We have advertising rates that are tailored to small businesses
and sponsored non-profits and purchasing an ad on their behalf is the perfect way to support local. Reach out to us and let’s see how we can work together!
In closing, we want to pass along our appreciation for your support. The tweets, posts and messages are amazing to see and it’s heartwarming to see that you love the magazine as much as we do. It truly is a labour of love at this point, none of us are collecting a paycheque as we work to make HCM financially sustainable — we need as much support as we can get. Please subscribe, share our online content on your socials or advertise. HCM is fully independent and owned by four Hamiltonians trying to bring something great to our city.
On that note, we’ll leave you to turn the page and start enjoying the best of the holidays – Hamilton style!
Happy Holidays to you and your families.
