Winter 2017 Publisher's Note

At Maine Seniors Magazine we believe that Maine’s greatest natural resource is SENIOR POWER!

We will be expanding on this theme throughout the year in a wide variety of ways. In addition to sharing information about the continued value of the 50 plus age group to Maine’s economy and communities, we will be sharing more stories about individual seniors who are improving our quality of life and who are truly inspirational. We call these people “Prime Movers”.

In this issue we have a man with the right “chemistry”. Cary James, is a teacher in his mid-sixties, who is developing award winning students. Cary continues to prove the value of seniors as mentors, in working with our youth and ensuring a better tomorrow. Truly a Prime Mover!

Enjoy the story of Rachel Rubeor who has helped to preserve an important Coastal Seafaring Heritage with Lubec Landmarks, and as a town select person, volunteer, and more! She embodies the very essence of a senior creating a better sense of community.

Maybe, I am “old fashioned” in that I greatly appreciate the small independent family businesses that become successful icons. Our first story in this issue about Jeff Corey and his family business Day’s Jewelers, proves that strong values with quality service and products are truly a gem.

Speaking of gems, the most precious gem of all is love. The staff at Maine Seniors Magazine wishes everyone the joy of love for this Valentine’s Day and every day of the year.
