Hello Patty!
 I am very impressed with the arrangement of my Ad;  Excellent work!!  
 Thank you so much.


Thank you and just wanted to mention I had my first confirmed customer referred through Tidbits today, you have paid for yourselves already :)
Have a nice day.

First off let me say..".I LOVE THAT LITTLE PAPER" I look so forward to picking up my issue each publication. It has been my custom to pick up "Tidbits" at Vernon's Schubert Centre....however....I have not seen it there since Christmas......Bottom line.....PLEASE be sure to deliver a good number of copies to Schubert Centre each week. It is, without a doubt the most informative, comprehensive, entertaining and "fun to do" publication available not only for we 'seniors' but for every age group! Thank you in advance....I look forward to seeing and picking up the next issue at Schubert Centre.

Tidbits has been an excellent place for us to advertise. Mike and Patty are extremely easy to work with and go above and beyond to deliver excellent service. I see Tidbits papers everywhere I go around town, especially in places where our target market would have access to them. I have heard “I saw you in Tidbits” many times so I know it is an effective way to get our business noticed. A great place to advertise, thank you Mike and Patty!

the ads look great.  I appreciate the bonus on the front page on Sept 19th very much. It was also great that Mike could drop in and say hello in Armstrong. Next time through I'll be in touch Cheers! Barry"


"Hello Mike and Patty,

We would definitely like to renew our ad.

I will be at the Home Show as well so I will see you there!

And thank you very much for stocking our brochure supply at the hospital, I greatly appreciate it!

Take care,



How is your ad doing and do you wish to continue your ad in Tidbits Vernon?

_________________________________________________________________________ "Several months ago I criticized your paper for not having enough Canadian content. I had noticed that many of your stories always quoted American sources and never Canadian. Your response was prompt and thanked me for the input. Since that time I have noticed that your paper is doing an excellent balancing job with Canadian content. Especially the piece entitled, "Canadian Tidbits."  In addition you have
featured a bio on famous Canadians. Criticism is one thing but people rarely give praise. So this email is letting you know I have appreciated your effort and your Canadian coverage is excellent.  Thank you." Bill Farley _________________________________________________________________________ “That’s the best paper I ever read!… Ever!”
