And just like that, 2022 is coming to an end.
I am truly blessed.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support.
Thank you to our advertisers and subscribers, your investment keeps the presses rolling. We are four months into our fifth year, 85 years for the Orono Weekly Times. I’ve got my sights on celebrating 100 years, who’s with me? I believe I have a business model that works and continues to improve. The Orono Times is an excellent example (in my humble opinion) of everything that a community paper does and everything that can be lost when that paper is no longer there — a dire situation that is developing in an increasing number of communities. My relentless goal each year is to bring community together.

CEFB receiving generous community support

Walking into the Clarington East Food Bank last Thursday, one will notice the shelves are full, as are the storage cupboards. The staff have been busy receiving, sorting and weighing the many donations that have been coming into the premises at 250 Mill Street South in Newcastle over the last several weeks.

Sally Barrie – Community health advocate

When we think of health care, we think of hospitals nurses and doctors, prescriptions. There are many more layers to our health care system, and advocacy is one of them. An advocate is described as a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.
