On Tuesday the Herald had an Employee Day to recognize​ ​the contributions of its employees, according to Titus Workman, publisher at The Daily Herald.​ ​All e​mployees​ ​wore​ ​eye-catching blue​ ​100 year anniversary​​ ​T-shirts and​ ​enjoyed a cookout​ ​of hamburgers and hot dogs​ ​for lunch.
 
The really big celebration is the Open House and Chamber ​Business After​-Hours event​ taking place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday​. ​There will be catered food, ​a huge ​birthday cake and music by local guitarist Chad Reed.​ Old archived issues of the newspaper will also be available for people to view.​ Workman also said they plan to have a ​ceremonial ribbon-cutting with the mayor and ​Wick Communications owner Robert Wick and Wick CEO Tom Yunt will attend.
 
A time capsule will be buried with various items that reflect the history of the newspaper as well as others that provide a record of the centennial celebration.  Workman also said Thursday’s newspaper will feature a special commemorative section, which will offer the history of the Herald, some historic front pages, information on the time capsule and comments from previous publishers at the Herald.​
