Milky Way to say goodbye

After several decades operating, Gordonton’s newsletter The Milky Way is to close down. 

“Over the years it has been going we have had the services of many volunteers to help with supplying news worthy articles, type-setting, collating and delivering our copies.

“This we have really appreciated and our sincere thanks to all those who have contributed in any way.”

The December issue will probably be the last, they said.

In addition to thanking advertisers, they acknowledged Gordonton Primary School for its newsletters  – “…these have been appreciated especially by the residents who no longer have children attending school.”

Number 8 Network joined the volunteers back in September 2011 in the old Gordonton school to help sort, staple and stack about 500 issues.  Here are some pics of the process –
