It’s official. A season of change is upon us, and the feeling is becoming palpable. With New York just around the corner, and many travel adventures planned for the summer, we’re almost jumping out of our skin to get outdoors. So when our newest MEC catalogue arrived in the mail this morning, we rejoiced at the thought of all that great camping equipment sitting in the garage, just waiting to be employed once again. To our surprise, we discovered that MEC is celebrating their 40th anniversary. In a true sign of the times, we also learned that this will be their last printed catalogue. We think it’s a very intriguing decision. As we ponder this decision and what it means to us, the customer, we can’t help but agree with their point of view – the times are changing. Communication is ever-shifting, and each and every business is discovering what that means, and how it affects their company both internally and externally. We commend them for their bold choice, and look forward to seeing what other intriguing decisions will be made as the 2010’s continue to progress. But enough politicking, let’s just enjoy the beautiful cover by Luke Ramsey (MEC member), inside work by Ray Fenwick (a local talent!), as well as Nina Palmer and Todd Macfie of Platform Design, and 40 years of hard work and dedication. Cheers to the future!
