The Two Lions Pub at Westview Shopping Centre was the site for the North Shore News’ 50-year alumni party last Friday evening. Former and current News employees gathered to reminisce, share stories and lots of laughs, and rekindle past acquaintances. The event featured 100 staff from every decade all the way back to our humble beginnings in 1969. Founding publisher Peter Speck was on hand to share in the festivities and fun, including a live performance by Swayed band, fronted by vocal talent and News alum Leanne Graber. See more photos from the event on our website at nsnews.com/nsn-50th, where you’ll also find a timeline of North Shore highlights of the past half-century as well as all the stories from our recent 50th anniversary edition.
