Herald planning holiday special edition; ‘Find the Pie’ is back

We at the Herald are once again making plans for our annual holiday edition and, as usual, we need your help. There are several ways you can contribute.


A favorite recipe

We are looking for special holiday recipes that are kid friendly  and would be fun for the whole family. Pictures of cookies and candy, along with kids and adults, would add to our holiday theme.

Recipes are not limited to cookies and candy, but main dishes, salads, breads and desserts are also welcome.


Holiday photos

Holiday photos are sure to brighten our pages and bring a smile to weary shoppers’ faces. Photos can be as recent as yesterday or as old as the hills. Pet pictures are also fun.


Holidays are memory makers

Perhaps, you or someone you know, was in a storm over the Holiday and could not get home for Christmas. Tell us about it. If you don’t like to write, just call me up or send me an email. Tell me your story and I will write it for you. Can’t beat a deal like that, can you?


Do you have someone
serving in the military?

Please send us your loved ones name and address  and a short message you would like to send. We will send the service people mentioned in the paper a complimentary copy of the Herald.


Letters to Santa

The Herald is accepting Letters to Santa and will print all letters which are received by December 8. Letters will be forwarded to the North Pole in time for Santa and his elves to fill orders before Christmas Eve. 



All items must be received no later than December 8 as the issue goes to press December 12.

Your contributions may be brought to the Herald, emailed or sent through the postal service. Email: sharon@postvilleherald.com; mail to: PO Box 100, Postville, IA 52162.


“Find the Pie”

The “Find the Pie” contest has resumed this week. Search the pages of today’s Herald and when you find it give us a call. All correct entries, who call before 4 p.m. Friday, will be entered in a drawing.
