History of the Clifton Chronicle

In 2001, Florine Postell suggested creation of a CTM newsletter, rich in content and distributed to the entire community. She was immediately joined by Barbra Druffel and E.P. Harris for production support, and the CTM Board of Trustees agreed to be the underwriter. When E.P Harris retired in 2007, Fred Thomas and Sandy Cohan became editors with Tom Lohre serving as production manager. In 2008, Lohre became Editor and Production Manager. In 2012, Vicki Black was hired to edit and publish the Chronicle.  In 2021, the Communications Committee hired designer and layout artist Josie Angel to support their ongoing publication work. Many CTM Trustees have served the newsletter over the years by contributing texts, soliciting stories, managing fees, permits, postage and printers accounts and updating an ever-growing mailing list. 

The 2022 Chronicle Committee: Jan Brown Checco (Chair), Marianne Brunner, Gerald Checco, Bob Driehaus, Rachel Wells, John Whedon, and Barb Wriston-Ruddy, with advice from the CTM Executive Committee. Email ctm.chronicle@gmail.com to get involved!
