Holiday almost here as Santa ready for midnight ride this coming week
Christmas is almost here in Polk County, which means that last minute preparations are happening all over to get ready for the gathering of family and friends, and for Santa’s big ride.
So once again this week, readers including St. Nick up at the North Pole are able to find out what Polk County’s little ones want this holiday season. Those can be found on Page A8 this week as last minute letters were turned in as late as last Friday to be published in the Standard Journal.
Additionally, take note that this week deadlines are a little different. We’re asking all our legal and classified customers to please have information and payment into the Standard Journal office by today at noon if they want it in the final edition of 2018 to come out on Christmas Day for most of our customers, and the following day for the rest who get the paper by mail.
For those who need to run advertising on January 2, 2019, we’re also asking they please come in on Dec. 26 to place an advertisement. Office hours on Christmas Eve will be limited from 8 to noon, and we won’t open again until Dec. 26 at 10 a.m.
Also please note that after New Year’s Day, we won’t open again until 10 a.m. on Jan. 2. We ask all those who want to get an item into the paper to plan accordingly, and get in touch with us in the office as soon as possible.
Next Tuesday will also see city and county offices closed, the courts closed, most of the stores around town and much more.
Also take note that this weekend’s Christmas Back Home concert is coming up in Cedartown on Saturday starting at 7 p.m., along with plenty of other events and services through the holidays at local churches. Check our community calendar on Page A12 for a fuller listing of what services are happening and when.
We thank all of our readers for their continued support during the holidays, and wish all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
