Arthur Enterprise News
We hope you enjoy reading the special second section of this week’s Arthur Enterprise News. We are tooting our own horn as we celebrate 150 years as your community newspaper!
Sincere thanks goes out to Advertising Consultant Ann Hepburn, who conceived the idea for the historical overview of stories and advertisements published in the Arthur Enterprise News over the past 150 years, and did the research necessary to make it a very interesting read. She also sold advertisements that support the special issue. It is because of the support of advertisers that we are able to publish the Enterprise News week after week so please, tell the local businesses that you saw their ad and that you appreciate that they support the local paper.
Sincere thanks are also extended to Cathy Higdon who week-after-week designs and produces the ads for the Enterprise News, and then the newspaper itself. She went above and beyond in recent weeks, designing and producing the special section in addition to her regular daily duties.
And, of course, the Enterprise News wouldn’t be the Enterprise News without Arthur’s Dianne Hatch who cheerfully takes on any task that needs to be done, from photographing and writing about events, to checking our lockbox at the grocery story for submissions and cheques, to cheerfully answering telephones, to doing the paperwork that sometimes seems never-ending.
Just as it has for a century-and-a-half, The Enterprise News continues to be produced by people who truly care about the community and who truly care about doing a good job.
We continue, week after week, to truly be your community newspaper filled with stories and photos about Arthur, its people and its events. No other newspaper cares about Arthur the way the Enterprise News has cared about Arthur for the last 150 years and continues to care about Arthur today. As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, we pledge that we will continue to cover events at schools, at the library, at the nursing home and at the arena and swimming pool. We will continue to write stories about the accomplishments of those in – and from — our community. We will celebrate the good things, grieve the sad things and help find solutions to the bad things. You will continue to see photographs of your children and grandchildren, your parents and grandparents.
