Milestones launching Sept. 10

For many years, the West Central Tribune has published wedding and engagement announcements in the "Extra" section every Saturday in the paper. This month, the newspaper will expand the page to include other types of family milestones as well.

The West Central Tribune will begin on Sept. 10 sharing this community news — milestones such as weddings, engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, births and going away parties — on this expanded page, which will appropriately be called "Milestones." This new page will still include the weddings and engagements as it always has, and it will be published each Saturday in our "Extra" section, just as before.

This change in our publishing process will allow all the "Milestones" to be published with color photos in both print and online editions, and we also have extended the deadline for submissions to noon Wednesday. This will give readers more time to submit their "Milestones" to us, and still will allow us to prepare it for publication in the Saturday newspaper.

The publication fee for this news will be $30 for announcements for weddings and engagements, and it will be $25 for all other "Milestones" announcements.

Readers can now submit their "Milestones" to the Tribune using the newspaper's website to place announcements.

In addition to your news, you will be asked to include your contact and payment information. The website will allow you to choose how the information will be displayed in the newspaper, including the length and whether you would like to include a photo. This website will then automatically prepare your "Milestones" to be processed online at as well.
