Thank you, dear writers, proofers and drivers!
Every year we are floored by how many people have volunteered to write, copyedit and proofread for The Charlotte News and to help distribute it to 57 drop-off locations from South Burlington to Vergennes.
In our 58th year of publication (July 2015–July 2016) we counted 131 unique contributors, a veritable army of wordsmiths and curious sorts, detailing the highs and lows of life in Charlotte, Vermont, and getting all of it into the hands of our readers.
However, this is only the people who have written for and distributed the paper. We hope in the future to better keep track of photographers and other volunteers who make this paper the stalwart of community journalism that it is.
We always welcome new volunteers and pride ourselves on providing an open and constructive environment for those new to the game. Putting pen to paper and want a local outlet? Got an eegle eye for catching grammar and spelling errors (like the one in this sentence)? Like taking morning drives and delivering papers to some of our favorite local businesses? Get in touch and join the ranks of those hearty souls below.
To those listed below, we can’t thank you enough for your continued support and interest in publishing with us at The Charlotte News. Here’s to many more years of collaboration!
