Go Go Gleaner

Excited to see The Gleaner in print again?

Help bring it back as a regular publication. 

The June 5th relaunch issue of The Gleaner was entirely thanks to local volunteers.  In order to bring back your community newspaper on a continuing basis, funds are needed for operating expenses during the startup period.  We're aiming for routine circulation of a print version beginning in September, but in the mean time, you can check out our website the-gleaner.com

Here's a little history: 

Founded 156 years ago in 1863, the Huntingdon Gleaner was owned by various family businesses for most of its history. Even though it was technically a private business, local ownership conveyed the title of ‘community newspaper’ as is typical across Canada.

As happened with the majority of print media outlets around that time, The Gleaner became part of a chain in 1985, and saw various owners over the years. In 2018, the owner, Gravité Média, reached out to the community to see if there was any interest in acquiring the title. Shortly thereafter, a non-profit community organization was formed to put plans into action to revive the publication as a true community newspaper.

Now you can help bring our much missed newspaper back to the Valley.

Fondé il y a 156 ans en 1863, Le Gleaner a été détenu par plusieurs entreprises familiales au cours de son histoire. Même si c’était techniquement une entreprise privée, la publication était considérée comme “journal communautaire” à cause de son appropriation locale, ce qui est typique à travers du Canada.

Comme c’est arrivé avec la majorité des organes de presse écrits à cette époque; Le Gleaner a été achèté par une chaîne multimédia en 1985, et il a vu divers propriétaires à travers des années. En 2018 Gravité Média, le propriétaire de l’époque, a tendu la main à la communauté pour déterminer s’il avait de l’intérêt à l’acquisition du titre. Peu après, une organisme communautaire sans but lucraftif a été créé pour passer à la réalisation de ses plans de re-lancer Le Gleaner comme un véritable journal communautaire.

Votre aide serait grandement appréciée.
