The latest issue has been mailed out to subscribers and retailers who all should be getting the newest copy very shortly.
This issue was a little slower coming out then hoped, but there have been a lot of changes at the office in the last month, not to mention the Christmas holiday period. It’s my first time publishing a magazine, and I’m learning as I go so please bear with me.
Speaking of Christmas, before the break Aimee showed me an old edition of the RCAF Honker published the Christmas of 1945. It contains a lot of interesting articles and pictures, including the cover photo of this issue of Them Days. There is also an article about the laundry facility on the Base in Goose Bay which I’m hoping to reprint and am looking for anyone who may have stories of working there.
Any help you can give, on this or any other photograph or story, is greatly appreciated.
Happy New Year! It’s been a while since we’ve blogged and updated everyone on what’s happening at Them Days. There have been quite a few changes over the last month: Aimee went on maternity leave after welcoming baby Maggie into the world, and I’ve joined the team as acting editor.
All this change has taken some getting use to but it hasn’t slowed work or publishing. Our new cookbook Grub hit the shelves just in time for Christmas, and there’s still lots of these great books left if you haven’t yet gotten your copy.
The latest issue, 40.4, has arrived at the office and will be hitting mailboxes and then stores very soon. Layout has already begun on the next issue (41.1) which will focus on women in Labrador and, fingers crossed, be out in time for International Women’s Day on March 8.
And let’s not forget the online auction we are planning for February. If you have any items to donate, we’d be more than happy to accept. Events like this are how Them Days are continuously able to bring you the stories of Labrador.
So 2017 is shaping up to be a busy year ahead! But, with your continued support, I know it will be just fine.
