The Tracy Press is celebrating Tracy. Tracy today is at the intersection of a rich past and the promise of a strong future.

On June 20, the Press will publish a special insert examining the history of our community — from our beginnings as the western end of the Transcontinental Railroad and growth in the decade between 1910 and 1920 to the city’s rise as an agricultural hub, the industrial era that brought the Heinz and Laura Scudders factories and the explosive population growth of the past 25 years.

“Celebrate Tracy” will also look at the potential of Tracy’s future, with the arrival of Amazon.com, courtship from Silicon Valley companies looking to move to our area and current development of the largest business park in Northern California.

We will also celebrate the myriad events Tracy residents can enjoy. The Grand Theatre Center for the Arts hosts arts classes and programs for people of all ages, in addition to concerts and other live productions. Annual events, such as the Festa, the Fourth of July celebration and the Taste of the Valley festival, bring the entire community together.

Tracy is a place of strong faith and many cultures. We are at the cusp of a bright future, and we want to celebrate Tracy and everything that makes our community special.

You can take advantage of this advertising opportunity and have your business be part of this celebration of Tracy. Call your advertising representative now at 835-3030 to reserve your space in "Celebrate Tracy." The deadline is June 6.
