PNR anniversary edition Dec. 12

Join News Review staff for coffee and cake on Dec. 13

The Peninsula News Review is celebrating its 100th anniversary as a community newspaper this year.

The paper published its first edition — and was at the time known as the Sidney and Islands Review — on Friday, Dec. 13, 1912. One hundred years later, we’re inviting people for coffee and cake at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney to commemorate the occasion.

The event takes place in the foyer of the Mary Winspear Centre from 1 to 3 p.m.

Staff from the News Review will be on hand to meet our readers.

The News Review produced a commemorative book earlier this year — The Review — published and offered for sale first in September and coincided with a larger celebration of the paper’s 100th anniversary at that time.

Extra copies will be available for sale on Dec. 13, and the proceeds go to the local museum and archives.

Readers can also purchase them at the Town of Sidney office, Tanner’s Books and Brentwood Pharmasave.

A special section on the News Review’s 100th anniversary will be published in our Wednesday, Dec. 12 edition — the paper nearest to the actual anniversary date.
