Happy 34th To Us!

This issue marks our 34th anniversary. After more than 1,760 issues – it is not a round number – we take a pause on our journey to glance back to see how far we have come. It is not a big commemorative issue – we will save that for the major signposts – and we will continue to go about our weekly business of bringing you the highlights of The World’s Borough, reflecting as best we can all that may be of interest to you (and some of it by you) our dear readers.

Nonetheless, we commemorate, not with much fanfare, but by carrying on, doing our best to bring information to you about our home borough – our weekly contribution to society. Seeing the preparations for the 4th of July, with the accompanying fireworks does put us in a festive mood as we take stock of our achievements. We have come a long way, from a single, four-page foldover to, on average, more than 10 times that much.

We thank our readers for always being there, appreciating our hard work, occasionally applauding or alternately letting us know how to improve, and we do take note. Sometimes our readers even let us know what they would like to see covered. We always do appreciate the input.

We thank our advertisers for bringing the best products, services and values to the community. We consider them part of our team.

We also thank the staff, who all contribute their special talents, wear multiple hats, pitching in to do whatever is needed without complaint, and always give their best as teammates, encouraging each other, sometimes nudging each other, respectfully, to do better; but all in all, putting in efforts above and beyond the call of duty.

We also thank the news makers, movers and shakers, for without them, we would have no news! We thank our elected leaders who put the members of Queens foremost in all decisions, as well all city workers, chefs, artists, educators, shop owners – the whole shebang that makes up this finest of boroughs we call home.

P.S. our actual anniversary is June 1982.
