The response to our call for former Call and Post employees has been phenomenal.

ployees speak with great admiration of the days that they, as a Call and Post group, did things together.
Many a good story has begun with C&P workers partying together.
Now some of those stories will never see the light of day, as its participants have been sworn to secrecy but quite a few antics are able to be told for public consumption.
In fact, almost every former employer I’ve spoken with concerning our 95th Anniversary, at some point, has gleefully spoken of gathering with co-workers outside of the workplace.
When you think about it, the thought of hanging out with co-workers “after” you’ve punched the clock is a testament to the family atmosphere established at the “People’s Paper.”
Untold numbers of people walk out of their workplace wanting nothing more than to not see anyone from their job unless it’s absolutely necessary but not here. Call and Post folks partying together throughout the years is the stuff legends are made of – at the club, bar, movie theater, Christmas party, cookout, pool hall, birthday events, we’ve done and seen it all, as a group.
Lifelong friendships have often been forged in the fire of 95 years on the job at the Call and Post Newspaper. In the upcoming installments of this section, we will explore such C&P friendships that have stood the test of time.
Some of these friendships have continued on even into retirement. Some have gone into business together while some marriages have occurred with the C&P as a mitigating factor.
As we reconnect with more and more of our former employees, the Call and Post is proud to find that we, collectively, have been a part of Ohio’s human story. Day by day, we come into contact with those who have served in the efforts “The People’s Paper” and are looking for more.
