Trail Times celebrates 120 years of covering Greater Trail.

Special logo highlights newspaper’s 120th anniversary

The logo will appear throughout the year and help highlight upcoming features of long-time subscribers, employees, and important events.

Faithful readers of the Trail Times may have noticed a new addition to the paper’s masthead.

With the newspaper celebrating its 120th anniversary this year, production manager Kevin Macintyre created a logo to commemorate the year-long celebration.

The design not only features the years of existence of the Trail Times but also highlights the various names the paper has taken on over the course of 12 decades – The Trail Creek News, The Trail News, the Trail Daily Times and the Trail Times.

“I thought that would be neat since some people might think that the papers weren’t associated through the years,” said Macintyre.

“Even though our name has changed it’s always been the same entity.

“I love the idea that our history goes back that far.”

The logo will appear throughout the year and help highlight upcoming features on long-time subscribers, employees and events highlighted in the Trail newspapers over the course of the last 120 years.

Watch for an upcoming insert every month, beginning Wednesday, that will highlight one memorable front page from the Trail Times from each of the last 12 decades.
