Anything to say?

by Dave Adsett

Less than a month from now, the Advertiser will be celebrating its 50th anniversary at the Wellington County museum.

Council and staff will be unveiling an archives project that digitized 50 years of the Wellington Advertiser.

County archivist Karen Wagner was able to secure a grant a year or two ago and has spent much time getting the project ready for the public.

We will be there too – with our staff, some old memorabilia and a little display in the archives showcase that will be open to the public until probably Labour Day.

Co-hosting the event there made a lot of sense and it should be a good afternoon on April 4, from 3 to 6pm. Dignitaries will have a few words at 4pm, but it is hoped that we can spend the most of the time celebrating this significant milestone.

After that event we will be publishing a special 50th anniversary edition, chronicling the open house and our 50 years in business.

Some advertisers have been asked if they want to participate in that special edition and a good number have jumped on board to help us celebrate well.

Some readers have indicated a desire to share a word or two as well. Since time is slipping by quickly, it seems right to offer readers the chance in advance to send in a sentence or two on their experience with the Advertiser.

We won’t necessarily be able to use everything, but any feedback will be appreciated.

Any thoughts can be dropped off to Marie at our front counter, or if easier, please send to our editor Chris Daponte at

We look forward to hearing from people and seeing many at our open house in April.
