Every year poses its own unique challenges; 2020 posed more than its fair share. It was a year of hardship and heartache, unimaginable loss of life, unrelenting hate that permeated American government and society. And through it all the Amsterdam News at 111, now 112 continued to publish, not missing a single issue. So, I wanted to take this time and executive privilege to thank our loyal readers and advertisers and the entire Amsterdam News family, especially those members of the staff who throughout the pandemic have continued to come into the office. Without them we would not still be publishing. It is with deep appreciation that I thank you.
