Due to weather related issues, in some areas there may be delayed deliveries of your Monday issue of the NewsTribune.
If road conditions are severe enough, your delivery person may not be able to deliver your NewsTribune at all on Monday.
In this case, your Monday edition will be delivered with your Tuesday newspaper.
We ask you to be understanding for the safety of our carriers.
It’s that time of year. Chilly noses, brightly-lit houses, the smell of baking in the air. While some people prefer to stay home and make holiday memories, many traditions involve us heading out the door to a wide variety of holiday events. The listings here were provided by area groups hoping to provide our readers with places to go and all the things that we’ll do.
The NewsTribune is seeking information about holiday activities from our circulation area’s nonprofit groups. This includes La Salle, Bureau, Putnam and Marshall counties. Any type of activity can be included for publication Tuesday, Nov. 4 through the end of the year. Deadline for submission is Thursday, Oct. 30. Thursday, October 16, 2014
