Here’s to the next 50 years of coverage
I filled in at the Packet for six weeks in 1999.
It was an incredible experience, mainly because of the paper’s great staff and faithful readers.
The Packet team was dedicated to publishing a great publication, but also to having fun.
During morning breaks, the office would be filled with laughter from the stories, jokes and hijinks.
The readers were engaged and pulled no punches when telling you what they thought of a story or that week’s paper.
It’s little surprise the Packet continues to publish an excellent community newspaper today.
The tradition of a great staff continues as does the dedicated readership.
Here’s to the next 50!
