Thank you to all of the people who came forward in emails and phone messages when Alberta Street News faced a financial crisis. Martyshuk Housing had been paying the printing costs up until the March issue. I didn’t know if there would be a May issue, but thanks to generous donations and City Councillor Michael Walters committing to purchase ad space, there is money to continue to pay for printing costs. Thank you also to Jim Gurnett, Sam Goertz, and others who came forward with ideas and encouragement. I am getting together an advisory committee to work on strategies for sustainability for the paper.
And, special thanks to Paula Kirman, our web designer, for getting the word out on Twitter and to the media, and the reporters who covered the story. Thank you!
