We’re getting older and bolder here at The Eagle. We will celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, and we’re excited to showcase this by giving back to the community!

We’re holding a VIP cocktail party at our offices in May, and we’re also rolling out a year’s worth of celebratory events and issues that we’re so jazzed to share what we’re doing with all of Dundalk.

We’re planning to make a life-size timeline that highlights 50 years of our community, and of our privilege to cover it. We’re also going to have an historical issue that’s special for collectors. Later in the year, we’ll have our 50 in 50 — which celebrates 50 people or organizations in the Dundalk area that have made their dent on our community and our world.

We’ll be rolling out a commemorative logo and new t-shirts soon. And we’re asking for your help and our community’s buy-in. We’re trying to raise $50,000 in sponsorship and partnership revenue for our wonderful little paper. But here’s the catch — we’re donating 50% of that straight back to the community!

We want you to be part of this. Who’s ready to celebrate Dundalk and The Eagle!

Stay tuned for more information, and let us know what you’ve loved about the last 50 years! Send me a note at editor@dundalkeagle.com.
