       In commemoration of the 145-year-old business changing hands for the first time in 49 years, and as a thank you to its communities, the newspaper will host the first Post-Signal Community Day on Saturday.

       Kicking off with a dual ribbon cutting from the Pilot Point and Aubrey Chambers of Commerce and featuring live music, vendors and outdoor activities, Community Day will be from 2-6 p.m.

       “It’s a play on our tagline—putting the community in community journalism,” Editor and Publisher Abigail Allen said. “We just want to celebrate the communities we cover, the people we get to interact with, and the impact they have on helping us and our business.”

       Allen said she wanted to make sure both chambers were present as the paper is represented by both.

       “We’re happy to participate [in them] because we see how much work and effort they put in to promoting the businesses throughout our area,” Allen said.

       Post-Signal staff will be present throughout the event enjoying the festivities alongside members of the Thatcher family, who made purchasing the business possible.

       Loco Snow and The Little Piglet Bakery & Scoops will offer food and refreshment onsite while attractions include pony and horse rides by Hopper Ranch, storytime focused on storytelling from Pilot Point Community Library representative Jenna Glass, outdoor games and live music first from Deanie Deal at 4 p.m. followed by Don Hankinson at 4:30 p.m.

       “I’m hoping it will be a fun little mini festival where people can interact and see how we’re all tied together,” Allen said. “We wouldn’t be ... what we are without having the communities that we serve, so I wanted to have an opportunity to bring everyone together and celebrate everyone all at once.”

       The event, minus the ribbon cuttings, is one Allen hopes to do again in the future if it is received well.

      “While we are a business that’s been in business since 1878, we can only keep going and growing if we serve our communities well,” Allen said. “It’s a chance to showcase that and have a different way to interact with everyone.”
