In June 1997 a free monthly community publication serving Ladysmith and area was first published. It was a modest affair, an 8-page newsletter. The next issue doubled in size – and what followed was a flurry of activity with many talented contributors. The readership grew and the business community advertised, but more than that, many wanted to support the “new kid”, a small, independent, and completely local publication. Fast forward, a quarter of a century later and we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of TAKE 5 Newsmagazine, with gratitude we say “thank you”.
