The Windmill Herald - Farewell Issue The Windmill Herald - Farewell Issue

by Albert VanderHeide (editor)

Commemorative publication. As soon the shock caused by the news that The Windmill Herald ™ would cease to publish in June 2012 had been digested, readers, advertisers, suppliers and also staff recommended that the paper say farewell with a special commemorative Farewell Issue. We owe everyone a huge THANK YOU for the suggestion; it was a bittersweet experience for everyone and one worth it in many ways. In this issue, contributors, subscribers, advertisers and The Windmill Herald’s longtime editor and publisher reflect upon the paper’s role in their life and in the community. In addition, the Farewell Issue tiptoes with a snapshot review through Dutch immigrant news published in the years 1969-1987, offers backgrounders on a few very popular features of The Windmill Herald, and includes a number of articles on subjects which were already partially researched but not yet printed: Immigrants more experienced at saying ‘Farewell’; Numerous elderly parents checked out immigrants; Dutch families often relied on their ‘own’ doctors; Entrepreneur consolidated BC interior sawmills; Comparing the new with the former left behind; Partial overview of ‘Windmill’ coverage, 1969-1987; Readers comment on the exit of the Windmill Herald; and more. Just the news that a Farewell Issue was forthcoming prompted special orders well before this regular newsprint production rolled off the presses. A limited number of Farewell Issue copies are now available - don't miss your copy!
