The Clifton Chronicle replaced the old “CTM Bulletin” as the publication of Clifton Town Meeting. The first issue appeared in Spring 2001 and has been published quarterly since then. The Clifton Chronicle is mailed to 4,781 households in the 45220 zip code area. If you would like to receive a print copy of the Clifton Chronicle, email Vicki Black at the address above.

The impetus to produce a newsletter rich in content and distributed to the entire community was provided by Florine Postell who was immediately joined by Barbra Druffel and E.P. Harris. It took some effort to persuade the CTM Board of Trustees to underwrite the new format and wide distribution, but eventually the idea won endorsement and the Clifton Chronicle was born.

In Fall 2007, E.P Harris retired and Fred Thomas and Sandy Cohan became editors with Tom Lohre as production manager. In Winter 2008, Tom Lohre took over the role as editor and production manager. The Spring 2012 issue was not printed as a search for a new “Do it All” person commenced.  In the summer of 2012, the CTM Communications Committee selected Vicki Black to produce the summer issue for a fee with Tom Lohre taking the role of Community Liaison. Over the next year Tom Lohre’s role was phased  out with a CTM Trustee taking over his role of recruiting stories, managing fees, permits, postage account and mailing list. Jeff Rose served as the first CTM Chronicle Trustee followed by Pat Knapp with Ashley Fritz currently fulling the role of CTM liaison.

Today the Clifton Chronicle is printed and mailed to 4,814 Cliftonites as a 12-page publication with advertising and stories four time a year. More stories are in the on-line PDF document of more than 40 pages: links to the left. You can read the printed on-line editions at the library in the magazine section and pick up the current printed edition. Additional current and past editions are in the box on Clifton Plaza next to the metal announcement boxes.
