Questions from Readers
Where, oh Where has Yankee Magazine Gone,
Oh Where, oh Where could it be?
The Wonderful Magazine that
Was So Very Special to me?
From The Shiny Cover
to the Treasures Deep inside
To Taste of Life in New England
Use to give me such pride
The Wonderful Magazine That
I So Loved, Again I’ll Never See
Because Someone at Yankee
Couldn’t Let An Unspoiled Treasure Be!!!
The “NEW” Look as they Call it
Is Such a Bore
That as soon as I started to read it
I felt myself starting to snore
Since You’ve Taken A National Treasure Away,
I Know Just What I’ll Do
When My Subscription Has ended,
I WILL NOT RENEW!!!

Ed: So I wrote Carol. Anyone who takes the time to compose a poetic lament is someone I want to know. And she admitted she had not actually read the stories yet. Later that evening she wrote back. She liked the stories. She’ll stay with us. And we’ll stay with her.
I just read in the Conway Daily that you are planning on changing your magazine to a bigger one. Please don’t change it. I love the way it is now. Everything in this world seems to get changed in one way or another. The heck with what the others in business do. Your Yankee is just like old-fashioned Ivory Soap…You know what I mean?

Hate the new format! I would rather have 12 small issues than 6 big ones! The small issue makes Yankee unique…and put Mary’s Farm at the end where it’s supposed to be!

I am saddened to hear that you are changing the size of the magazine. That was always part of the charm of the traditional New England magazine. It had withstood the “times” and held fast to the format.
