48th anniversary

 We’re also excited to be celebrating our 48th anniversary on Nov. 7.

As Ponte Vedra’s paper of record since 1969, we firmly believe that the Recorder is the paper residents can turn to for credible, thoughtful, original and interesting reporting, and we’re proud to be a fixture of the community.

With that being said, we want to celebrate this milestone with you. Do you have any old Recorder articles or memories of the paper? If so, please bring them to our office or email them to me at JonB@opcfla.com. We’ll plan to publish them in next week’s paper to reflect on our long-standing commitment to the Ponte Vedra community.

Thank you for your continued support! We wouldn’t have made it to 48 without you!
