Lynn's Comments: The Dundas Valley Journal was in a building on Main Street in Dundas Ontario. It consisted of a few cubicles, a couple of offices and a receptionist at the entrance. The receptionist had so many duties, you had to find her before you could ask to be allowed in!
Lynn's Comments: This was a small town newspaper in every way; a great place to begin if you wanted to know- and to work in each facet of the business! The DVJ was a popular weekly rag, but despite strong local support, the publisher had a hard time staying in the black and white!
Lynn's Comments: Having Elly do a regular column posed the question: "about what should she write?" Since she was an avid reader (with little time to read) a column about books and local library news would be right up her alley. This was also something I could easily research. I looked forward to talking to our library staff and finding out what THEIR jobs were like.
