Congratulations to the voice of the community

THEY say life begins at 40. I hope the milestone you are about to attain (come June) as team Echo will make you better and stronger than what you are already, moving forward.

Indeed, 1979 was a good year, hence the voice of our community was born.

What you have stood for for the past four decades has invited me to say in advance: “Happy 40th birthday Echo.”

Editor Candyce Krishna, you have your hands full. The reader and client can be hard to please sometimes.

I can gladly say, since you took over, you’ve swiftly transitioned to the culture and identity of what Echo is richly known for. Continue in taking our beloved newspaper, Echo, to greater heights.

Bring us fresh content that will create new markets for us — the reader and client.

Its befitting to say: “We have always had your back, chose and loved you [Echo] because of the impact you have had in our lives.”

Over the years you’ve gained our trust and respect, and that’s why we honour you and love you.

Looking forward to the series of events you have for us. All the best. Hip, hip, hooray!



Editor’s note: Thank you for your letter and well wishes. I assure you that Echo will only continue to soar. Stay tuned and keep sending in your letters.
