It is a photo of our circulation/distribution staff. These are the behind the scenes people. They stuff flyers in the papers, bundle the papers, deliver them to the stores and newspaper boxes, so our readers can pick up their copy.

The Standard had a booth there that year and Christopher Green/reporter, when around and interviewed the various ribbers, we have a podcast of the interviews on our YouTube channel. Pictured is Darlene (sales representative) and myself.

June 20, 2011 during a nation wide Canada Post Strike

At the time our paper was delivered by Canada Post. In order to get our paper out during the 3 week strike our staff, families and members of the public came forward and voluntarily chose to deliver our paper at no cost. It was really great to see how supportive the community was by rallying around us to get the paper delivered. This photo was taken out front of our original location at 94A Water Street, Port Perry.
