Now that one is ALOT LOL. My son has been on the front page of the newspaper in CT & in PA 4 times. 2 times directly about him, 2 others were things he was doing. One being at the racetrack & one being scouting for food with scouts. The 2 directly about him were Once when he won the Lowe's Derby Design Contest & was flown to a Nascar race, met Jimmy Johnson & got his award. He & hubby were in Boy's Life, a scout magazine, etc. So it was a huge deal. Then, He was on the front page for his Flag Raising Ceremony for his Eagle Scout project. Since he chose to do it at a District Court Magistrates office it was a big deal, plus have a ceremony for the flag raising made it bigger. 

Then inside the newspaper, many times for scouts, the band, school, sports or other things. We even have times he was put in for a friends first birthday ( a think they did locally back then ) and his first birthday. 

My husband has been on the front page when he helped with the Memorial Day parade & He was in uniform & saluting. Then few times with scouts. 

I was on the front page with Jonathan in the race picture. I was on the front page when I crossed over my Lion's. First ever Lion Scouts, Kindergarten age. So, that was big. Then I was in the other pages with the whole group of Lions & Jonathan as he was my unofficial den chief. 

Newspapers are such a thing, Jonathan doesn't even blink at being in them. We were laughing at that at setting up his graduation stuff.

 My kids and I were in at the end of a summer Rec Center program one year. My older two kids were on the front page on the first day of school 3 years ago- they had just gotten off the bus and were walking into school- it was an article about the start of school in the area. My youngest's name and his oil pastel that was in our district's art show were featured a few months ago on a page that had 12 of the pieces- one from each grade from 1st-12th.

That's all I can recall right now, but something is telling me there were a few more times.

Yes!  Even me!  LOL.  I was shopping at the grand opening of Burlington years ago when DD2 was little and they photographed us.  LOL.  With my FIL being a former President Judge in our county, he was in the paper often and now with my SIL being an elected official so to speak, she is making the headlines as well.  My MIL is involved with a lot of community events so she is also in the paper often.

Yes, my kids have all been, dh and I have been... Most recently our newspaper did a feature on our autism support group/playgroup at our church and my dh and son were in it as well as my other 2 kids in a pic of a group of kids playing. It was cool.

My kids have been in the paper for school events/field trips a couple of times.

I've been in the paper a couple of times for completing 5k events with the staff and students I work with.
