NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, has sent a message of congratulations to The Greek Herald on its 95th anniversary this year.
In her message, Ms Berejiklian hailed The Greek Herald as “a great migrant success story, providing its readers with a comprehensive range of local and overseas news since 1926.”
Here is the full message in English:
I am delighted to congratulate everyone involved with The Greek Herald as this fine newspaper celebrates its 95th year with a special edition.
The Greek Herald is a great migrant success story, providing its readers with a comprehensive range of local and overseas news since 1926. It was in the 1960s when the Herald really began to flourish, following news ownership and the introduction of modern technology.
The publication has won numerous awards including the prestigious Presidential Press Award from the Hellenic Republic on two occasions.
While its reporting on current affairs has always been impressive, the community has retained a special place in the Herald’s pages, keeping people in contact through its coverage of local news and social and fund-raising events.
Congratulations to the Greek Herald on 95 years and your outstanding contribution to the community.
Gladys Berejiklian MP, Premier.
