The Free Press is one of the oldest businesses in the Elk Valley, and has employed hundreds of people over the years, from reporters, to carriers, to receptionists, to ad salespeople. Every employee has helped make The Free Press a newspaper they can be proud to have worked for.

We will be celebrating our 115th birthday this year, and are calling out to everyone who has ever worked here to come and be a part of a group photo to mark the occasion.

Drop by The Free Press office on December 7 at 3 p.m. for a look around, refreshments, and a chat with current staff, and to be part of Free Press history.
