A nice holiday gift to Daily Herald readers

With our readers in mind The Daily Herald continues to produce special inserts and promotions that continue to set us apart from other papers and editions from the past.
On Saturday, December 28th a special gift will be included and mailed to almost 7,000 homes just in time for the start of a new year.
With permission from the Tyrone Historical Society and help from area businesses, a 2003 calendar will arrive in your home. This year long day keeper features historic photographs of Tyrone and the surrounding area taken from the archives of the Historical Society and past editions of The Daily Herald. Pictures include the crowds that gathered at the old Tipton-Altoona speedway, Blair County National Bank from the year 1891, the Logan School and many more.
“First, we thank all of our great sponsors and hope that our readers enjoy this end of the year gift,” said Adverstising Executive Patty Hyde. “When we found the old photos during our move to our new building. We thought they were perfect for this first edition of the calendar.”
This project wraps up another year of promotions for the Herald that started with our first Baby of the Year contest, in the middle featured the largest annual fall football edition in the history of the newspaper and wrapped up with new original ideas including our hometown heroes salute to area firefighters, and a special memorial edition honoring our nations veterans. The Daily Herald also thought out of the box creating the Punt Pass and Kick contest at the Tyrone home football games and wrapped a Tyrone Christmas train for under a tree for a lucky winner who entered our contest in our annual santa’s gift guide.
“We have more special and original ideas arriving as we start 2003 including the tremendous Tyrone, Tipton and Bellwood map project in January,” said Hyde. Hyde is looking forward to being able to present the ideas to the business community and continues to be a part of the brain trust in creating original concepts.
On behalf of everyone at The Daily Herald we wish your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year and thank you for helping your hometown newspaper continue to grow.
