Today, the Bradenton Herald begins celebrating its 90 years as our community's leading news source.
We're proud of all the ways we now deliver your news: on Bradenton.com, on iPads and iPhones, in the e-edition...
But we still relish the sound of that newspaper hitting your front porch or driveway every morning. For more than 33,000 days, the Herald's print edition, your newspaper, has been delivered to zillions of your homes, offices, street corners, store racks and more. And those pages have held so much more than the daily headlines.
The Herald has chronicled so much local history -- often some of your proudest moments.
What clipping do you have in your scrapbook, on your fridge, tucked away in a book? Send us a photo of your favorite clippings from the past nine decades, and we'll share them in a special edition. We came up with a suggestion list to help get you started:
Engagements, weddings and anniversaries. Babies' first birthdays. Sports spotlights, biggest fish caught, championship seasons. Social galas, neighborhood barbecues, vintage recipes. Graduations, homecomings and fund-raisers. Your four-legged family members.
We've cherished them all, and hope you'll proudly share the memories.
Email them to: Metro@Bradenton.com

If you can't take a photo, send us a note or email, and we'll pick a time for you to come by the Herald for a photograph. Call 941-745-7000 and leave a message.
