Bundaberg's own commemorative book

IT has been 110 years in the making — Bundaberg in Print: 110 Years of News will be available at the NewsMail tomorrow.

Meet the people and discover the events that have shaped the history of the entire Bundaberg area with this special commemorative book.

“For the past 110 years, the NewsMail, in its various forms, has been there to cover the ups and downs of the community,” NewsMail editor Christina Ongley said.

“This book is a celebration of the Bundaberg region through the eyes of the newspaper.”

Through scores of name changes and editors, this newspaper has given the Bundaberg region its daily digest of news, information and entertainment.

Bundaberg in Print: 110 Years of News follows on from the highly popular 100 Years of News, released in 2000.

The NewsMail has been there to share in the experiences and connect the community, so grab a copy, laugh and cry along with the stories that have shaped Bundaberg from 1900 to 2009.

From the opening of the Burnett River Traffic Bridge to the Gaeta fires this year, the book has it all.

Bundaberg in Print will be available for purchase from tomorrow at the NewsMail office in Targo Street, for $12.50.

Pre-orders have closed, but those who have their copy already booked can come and pick it up at the NewsMail office any time from tomorrow.
