Newspaper to clean photo files

By Patricia Ann Speelman -

SIDNEY — Have you forgotten something?

Dozens of area residents submitted hard copy photos to the Sidney Daily News in 2012 and never went back to pick them up.

The Daily News is now cleaning up its photo files. Photos submitted during 2012 with no contact information attached will be available at the newspaper’s booth in the Merchant’s Building at the Shelby County Fair from July 26 through Aug. 1. They will then be available at the newspaper’s offices, 1451 N. Vandemark Road, through Aug. 28.

Daily News staff have begun to phone those submitters who provided contact information. Their photos will be available through Aug. 28 at the newspaper’s offices. 2012 photos not retrieved will be discarded on Sept. 1. Photos submitted after 2012 also are available at the newspaper office.

Photos are of weddings, anniversaries, engagements, college acceptances, birthdays, scholarship winners, state fair winners, hair donors, retirees, obituaries, youth activities, awards presentations, club activities, promotions, military service, teens of the month and more.

These are not photos that were taken by Daily News photographers. They have all been submitted by area residents during 2012. Some have names on them. Many do not.
