For months, the Vinton Newspapers staff has worked on a 150-page special edition to help celebrate the city’s 150th birthday. Vinton Newspapers staff along with several volunteers from the community stopped by this week to help collate and package the 11-section edition. Pictured here are just a few of the many who helped.

Thanks to everyone for helping put together this massive project!
