Welcome to our final issue of 2019 (and, due to our publishing schedule, technically the first one of 2020). What a year it has been! We celebrated our 40th anniversary with a grand gala on March 9th. Our publication schedule changed to eight issues per year, while we focussed additional attention on our website and social media.
As always, we could do none of these things without the support of our volunteers. I have a few to thank. Gary Garrison has completed the maximum number of terms as a board member (three two-year terms), so he steps down (for now) as a board member and as our Chair. His wisdom and presence will be greatly missed.
Also stepping down from the board for the same reason is Ian Young. We look forward to his continued involvement with the paper as a columnist.
Finally, Nathan Binnema steps down after four years on the board, as he has moved out of the community. We thank him for his contributions and wish him all the best.
And to you, our readers: have a wonderful holiday season and beginning of the New Year. We’ll be back in February.
