To bring you The Charlotte News every two weeks throughout the year we depend on three sources of support: the businesses that regularly advertise with us, the volunteer writers and photographers who provide content for the paper and, importantly, the donors who contribute to our annual fundraising campaigns.
On behalf of the board of directors and the staff of The Charlotte News, I want to express our deep sorrow at Alice’s death and our lasting appreciation for the extraordinary contributions she has made to the paper over the past decade.
Two findings stand out: First, more of you read the print version of the paper than the online version. And second, we need to include more local news in each issue.
The News is delighted to welcome intern, Champlain College student, Violet Bell.
The Charlotte News is Vermont’s oldest nonprofit community newspaper, and we are looking for someone to join us as our manager of ad sales.
Monica Marshall, our advertising manager, is leaving the paper after this week’s issue. She has been our ad manager for the past three years and before that did a similar stint for us between 2002 and 2005.
Fundraising. Thank you to everyone who responded to our 2017 fundraising appeals. We finished the year having met our fundraising goal, and because of the support of both our donors and our loyal advertisers we enter 2018 in good shape financially. We look forward to your continued support in the new year.
The Charlotte News is a nonprofit community-based newspaper dedicated to informing townspeople of current events and issues. It serves as a forum for the free exchange of views of town residents and celebrates the people, places and happenings that make the Town of Charlotte unique.

At this time of the year, we traditionally give thanks for all that we have.

Your donations help make our work possible.
