By Vince Crockenberg, President of the Board of Directors of The Charlotte News 

At this time of the year, we traditionally give thanks for all that we have. One of the good things we Charlotters have had since 1958 is The Charlotte News, a nonprofit community newspaper that reports on and celebrates the people, places and happenings in this town that we love. Your donations help make our work possible.

This year to date we have raised $17,000 of the $22,000 we need to balance our 2017 budget and carry us into the first months of 2018. If you have already made your annual contribution, thank you. If you haven’t yet or would like to make an additional contribution, you can do so online at charlottenewsvt.org or by sending a check to The Friends of The Charlotte News, PO Box 303, Charlotte, VT 05445. All contributions are tax-deductible.

At The Charlotte News we strive to provide you with stories that are interesting, informative and well-written. Please do your part to ensure these stories continue to come to you every two weeks every year by making a contribution today.

Thank you for your support of your hometown paper.
