A day in the life begins Tuesday

The West Central Tribune wants to hear from you.

On Tuesday, newspaper staff will spend an entire 24-hour period compiling photos, videos and text to document a day in the lives of residents of west central Minnesota.

It’s all part of our annual Focus edition, which is scheduled to publish in April.

Please help us tell these stories: birthdays, haircuts, card games, rehearsals, a recital, a church fundraiser — you tell us and we’ll do our best to be there.

Perhaps you work at a hospital or clinic.Let us know the patient volume.

If you work in a bar or restaurant, you might share the number of burgers or beverages you serve on a daily basis.

Or, if you are going bowling, maybe there is a score are you trying to top.

For those events we can’t attend, we urge you to submit your own photos, videos or a written anecdote.

Nothing is mundane.

For more information, please call the Tribune at 320-235-1150, email or visit

Together, let’s make Tuesday a day to remember.
