History of the Clifton Chronicle

In 2001, Florine Postell spearheaded a CTM newsletter, to be rich in
content and distributed to the entire community. Joined by Barbra Druffel and
E.P. Harris for production support, the CTM Board of Trustees agreed to
underwrite the effort. Fred Thomas and Sandy Cohan became editors in 2007 with Tom
Lohre serving as production manager, and Tom became editor and production
manager the following year. In 2012, Vicki Black was hired to edit and publish the
Chronicle. The newsletter expanded in 2021 when the CTM board hired
designer/layout artist Josie Angel to support ongoing publication work. Jan Brown
Checco has chaired the committee since. The CTM Chronicle Committee responsible for sending out the call for stories and announcements to local organizations, writers, historians,
artists, and poets.
