The Dearborn County Fair was going through some changes and we needed to get this information out to the people of Dearborn County and surrounding area. Our budget is limited so we are glad that The Beacon could help us out and stay within our budget. We set record attendance and stayed within our budget thanks to Celeste and The Beacon.
- Duane Bischoff, President, Dearborn County Fair Board

Celeste works with us closely, guiding and helping us to maximize our potential in advertising and getting the word out about our events and activities. She takes the time to explain how things work or make positive suggestions so we can get the best return for our efforts.
- Natasha Bischoff, President Sunman Area Chamber of Commerce
