TCFlogoThe Texas Citrus Fiesta has dealt with the Mission Progress Times since its founding 36 years ago. This is the main newspaper that we rely on to get our information out to the public.

The results of advertising and running press releases with them regarding our non-profit organization are great. The proof is in the attendance that we have. We can brag about our parade with participants and spectators that number 100,000 people!

We are lucky to have our own hometown paper. They treat us like family and care about what is going on in our community.

The BillFilut_testimonialMission Progress Times has great customer service and responds immediately to our needs. We really are enjoying their new look that shows that they keep up with the times. We look forward to continue working with them for many years to come.

Sincerely, William (Bill) Filut
President, TCF
