Ledger starts work on 2014 visitors’ guide
Whitehall Ledger staff members have started working on the 2014 Whitehall visitors’ guide.
The guide will showcase all of the attractions that Jefferson Valley has to offer. As in years past, the guide will include stories on local events, Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, handy phone numbers and websites, Whitehall’s Lewis & Clark murals, the Jefferson Valley Museum, the beautiful Jefferson River and many other attractions.
Several thousand guides are printed and distributed throughout the year.
The Ledger plans to print this year’s guide in late March and insert it in all of the Ledgers on Wednesday, March 26. Several thousand more copies will be printed and circulated in Whitehall and the surrounding area, including Butte and Bozeman.
The Ledger plans to start approaching businesses this week to see if they would like to advertise in the guide. Businesses that were in last year’s guide will be approached first. Businesses that did not advertise in last year’s guide and want to advertise this year are urged to call the Ledger office at 287-5301 as soon as possible so we can be sure to see you as well.
Also, if anyone has any ideas for improving the guide, the Ledger would like to hear from you.
