Avonlea Communications got it's name in about 2000 when Iain MacDonald was living in the small town of Avonlea, Saskatchewan. He and family had just moved an iconic Eaton's house from a farm two miles south of town onto a main street lot, where they lived and he worked in between making lunches for children, learning how to hang doors, and many other essentials for a happy, mouse-free home.
Iain has degrees in Political Science and Education (With Distinction) from the University of Regina, and his "career" has included years of freelance work, an editor position at an educational publishing firm, Director of Public Affairs for public broadcaster Saskatchewan Communications Network, managing editor of KWD Magazine, and now 18+ years of working with diverse and interesting clients and project partners.
Apart from his amazing wife and three children, Iain's other life has been devoted to the study, performance and teaching of bagpipes, a love shared by that same family: three pipers and a drummer. Locally, Iain founded The City of Regina Pipe Band, and teaches The Conservatory Pipe Band at the University of Regina.
