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.

Contributions in the form of articles, press releases and photographs of Charlotte-related people and events are accepted and encouraged. For deadlines, see schedule below.

The Charlotte News is published in Charlotte by The Charlotte News, Inc., a Vermont domestic 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation. We work closely with the Friends of the Charlotte News, a tax-deductible, Vermont domestic 501(c)(3).

Distribution is made every other Thursday to all households and businesses in Charlotte and to more than 50 outlets in Shelburne, Hinesburg, North Ferrisburgh, Ferrisburgh, Vergennes and Burlington.

The Charlotte News relies on the generous financial contributions of its readers, subscriptions and advertising revenue to sustain its operations.
