Throwback Thursday – 10 years ago in the Express

It’s our favourite time of the week – a chance to reflect on the changes in Esperance, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

On January 9, 2009 our front page story looked at generous efforts from local businesses to fund an Esperance community member’s trip to Africa to do humanitarian work. Bianca Smith went to teach children in Africa in September 2009.

Our front page of the January 14, 2009 edition looked at a $12,000 fundraising goal to fight cancer through the Relay for Life. The event was later held at the Multi Sports Complex in April 2009. 

Take a look at our gallery and see if you can spot any familiar faces.
