This time we offer you a very special, and dear, issue of our magazine.
Special and very dear because it is dedicated to Venancio on the occasion of his retirement. He has been many years with us and then many more teaching in other schools in Burlada and other places in Navarre. Once we knew about his plans we decided we wanted to do something, and after considering a long list of possibilities, we decided to make a special issue of Ibaialde News dedicated to him. Then we made some changes from a normal magazine. As it was for Venancio, his family and his friends, we thought we should give everybody the chance to write in the language they preferred, and many have done it in Spanish. We have not translated them because that might change some of the affection and love shown in all the lines of the articles published here.
Dear Venancio, thanks and we will never forget all what you mean to us!
