Last fall Island resident, Melanie Most, assumed the role of owner/publisher of The Island Flyer, and has securely taken the reins of this beloved Island icon from long-time owner Theresa Kukawka.
Below you’ll find some useful information regarding The Island Flyer and its deadlines and circulation. This also acts as a tiny glimpse into a story that’s in the works for the 2022 edition of The Delta News—due out this August.
If you’re not familiar with The Island Flyer, it’s a mini newspaper that the people of Harsen’s Island—along with visitors—look forward to, save, and depend on for community happenings, real estate listings, "happy" ads and family celebrations, plus business information. On a regular weekend the press run averages 1,500 papers and rises to 2,200 for holiday weekends.
It’s a cost-free paper that can be picked up at select Island retailers and locations including Jane’s Sans Souci Market, The Reader’s Cove, The Waterfront Shoppe, The Island Grind, the Middle Channel Marina, and The Old Club. It’s also available from volunteer paper carriers when you’re in line for the ferry on the mainland on Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings.
The Island Flyer is printed for 15 weeks with the first 2022 issue out on Friday, May 27 (Memorial Day Weekend). Then it wraps up the season with the Labor Day Holiday Edition on Friday, September 2.
The deadline for all ads and articles is always the Sunday before at 5 p.m. If you’re interested in submitting news, items of interest, or advertising, the email address is the same as before: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes, Melanie! We look forward to working with you this year!
