139 years and still relevant

The Dimboola Banner celebrated its 139th birthday last Friday.  The first publication of the Banner was printed on May 10, in 1879. After many successful years of publication a takeover bid was made in 1921, however the bid failed and an opposing newspaper, the Dimboola Chronicle, went into publication. The Banner remained robust and absorbed the Chronicle in 1930. There have been several owners over the years including the Barry family and in latter years the Ward family from Warracknabeal who took over the newspaper well over ten years ago, to ensure its survival.
Movember supporters Chris Johnson and Fabian Lauricella join with event organiser and Movember advocate Jodie Warner.
