IT CAME FROM WARKWORTH

I read with great interest the article in a recent issue of Watershed that told the story of the Black Fly, an innovative and exciting electric airplane that was developed in Northumberland County. This story, as your article details, started several years ago with Marcus’ determined efforts to realize his vision. I had the pleasure of visiting Marcus while he was working on his prototype. The purpose of my visit was to see if the Community Futures Development Board could assist him in his work. Once again, your article describes the successful work by the CFDC Board and staff to find manufacturing space in Cobourg and to link Marcus to industry professionals. I know they were thrilled to see the launch of this incredible aircraft last year.

I believe there is an important message in this story: Achievement is not limited to the big city or the big corporation. There are opportunities, re- sources and facilities in Northumberland that are available to entrepreneurs, inventors, and yes even dreamers.

I wish Marcus, his wife and his new associates every success with their exciting product and I also commend the CFDC for the continuing efforts to assist the people of our Northumberland. And your magazine is a fabulous vehicle for stories like this. Well done!

EVERY EDITION IS AN INDULGENCE

Congratulations on another outstanding issue of Watershed. Every edition is such an indulgence, and one of the few magazines I read from cover-to- cover. This includes poring over the wonderfully enticing advertisements! Proof that marrying outstanding stories with good design works so well for your magazine, advertisers and readers alike. Your Winter 2018/2019 edition is especially captivating. I love the heart-warming Letter from the Editor, which reflects upon your family’s Christmas enduring tradition of reading The Polar Express. A lasting memory for the generations, to be sure. The article on the Blackfly (It Came From Warkworth) is an exhilarating glimpse of Canadian ingenuity at its best. How exciting it will be when workers and travellers in our area can hop into their personal aircraft – all while experiencing the beautiful scenery of Quinte, and Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties by air. Bye-bye to the stress-filled 401 trek. Keep up the great work.

QUALITY AND DIVERSITY OF ADVERTISERS IN WATERSHED MAGAZINE

As spring is approaching, I am compelled to write to you to say how much I am looking forward to receiving the Spring edition of Watershed Magazine.

This wonderful magazine informs me of events happening in Northumberland County, Prince Edward County, Quinte West and beyond. The editorials are always informative and factual, while the featured articles are inspiring and exciting to read.

I always enjoy perusing the magazine in search of new recipes, local events and featured articles on art, decorating, and cultural matters.

The quality and diversification of the advertising in the magazine is first class. As a result of these ads, I have visited many restaurants, boutiques, and stores, some of which I might not have otherwise known about.Thank you for continuing to provide an excellent, informative magazine to our communities.

HELPS US BUILD OUR BRAND

As an advertiser in Watershed for the last several years, I just wanted to thank you for the positive impact that this magazine has had on my business. The beautifully designed publication, wonderful local content and extensive circulation has helped us to build our brand and attract new customers. We frequently get new visitors to our boutique who tell us they came in because they saw our ad in Watershed.

Digital doesn’t replace the visual and tactile experience of a nice magazine like Watershed. Hands down.
