Wave 110th Anniversary Issue Next Week
The Wave celebrates its 110th anniversary this month with the publication of a special 80-page edition in addition to its regular weekly edition on July 25.
The special edition will be included free with each paper sold by subscription or on the newsstand next week. The special edition will be mailed under separate cover to subscribers. After that initial distribution, however, the special anniversary edition will cost $5 and will be available only at the offices of The Wave.
The special edition consists of headlines from the archives of the paper from its beginnings in 1893 until today. It also includes reminiscences from those who have lived in Rockaway for many years.
"This Anniversary Edition will be something that Rockaway residents will want to keep for their grandchildren," says Wave Managing Editor Howard Schwach. "People still come to The Wave for its 100th Anniversary, which was published ten years ago. This edition should generate even more interest in light
of the events since 1993."
