The Gazette

Read the Current Winter 2017 Issue

The CVEA Gazette is produced triennially and distributed free to all residences in College View Estates. The first issue was Fall 1996, created by Jerry Weaver. The inaugural issue led with a statement about the purpose of CVEA and pointed out that the Gazette would be distributed free to all households as a way to attract new members.

Jerry continued to edit and produce until 2001 when RD Williams assumed production responsibility. Current co-editor Lisa Vickers came on board in 2002 and assumed full responsibility in 2003. Ann Cottrell began providing text for the Gazette in 2007 so Lisa could concentrate on the beautiful layout, art work and production.

Early editions were done on a typewriter and photocopied with occasional drawings. The first photographs were added in 2002 and the full color edition debuted in 2008, the same year the “Meeting Our Neighbors” column was introduced on a regular basis.

Ann and Lisa are eager to include others on the Gazette team. They are always looking for fresh ideas on how to improve the Gazette and are interested in what you would like to see covered. We can always use help with supplying content; if you would like to submit an article or write an article, please contact Ann for word count and timeline.

This archive of CVEA Gazette issues provides a wonderful history of what we have done for fun and what issues were hot.
