The Nation Publishing Company began celebrations of its anniversary this morning with a church service at St Mary’s Anglican Church in The City, obliquely opposite where the newspaper started 37 years ago.
Today, also being Remembrance Day, Canon Noel Titus centred his sermon around that theme, saying that it was up to those who still remembered those days to ensure the next generations did not forget.
Speaking particularly to the NATION and the media in general he said: “I must impress on you your duty to inform and educate, so those who come after never miss the messages they ought to have. Then they would have something to remember.”
The service was attended by chairman and editor emeritus Harold Hoyte, chief executive officer and publisher Vivian-Anne Gittens, directors, executives and staff members.
Also present was Dame Olga Lope-Seale, former broadcaster and the island’s most noted social worker who has a long-standing relationship with the Nation.
The Nation continues its celebrations this week culminating with the Nation Fun Walk next Sunday. (CA/RT)
