10 years of the First Coast Register


Here at the Ponte Vedra Recorder, we’re extremely proud to have been your source for community news since 1969. As we near 50 years of printing the paper, however, we’re also celebrating another milestone: 10 years of printing the First Coast Register. 

First printed as a glossy publication in 2008, the First Coast Register is our bimonthly, general interest, luxury and lifestyle magazine. As seen in this week’s Recorder, the Register is inserted within the newspaper every other month, as well as distributed to over 250 locations on the First Coast. From Amelia Island to St. Augustine and from Ponte Vedra to Julington Creek, the Register can be found in exclusive condos and developments; golf, country and social clubs; fine restaurants and upscale shops; and area institutions such as the Cummer Museum and Mayo Clinic, among other locations. The magazine is also found on our website (pontevedrarecorder.com).

Included within the Register are social pieces on some of the First Coast’s most swanky galas and events, as well as features on some of the community’s most interesting people and businesses. Each magazine focuses on a different theme, with several stories within the publication tying to that topic. For instance, our April/May edition features a “Spring Home & Garden” theme, and included within the magazine are stories on a new business coming to Ponte Vedra Beach that will offer home accessories and furnishings, as well as a feature on Jacksonville Beach’s Sidney Cardel’s, among others.

As you flip through this edition of the Register, we encourage you to keep us in mind for future stories and events that you think would make a good fit for the publication. We are always seeking suggestions for content and ways in which we can continue to deliver a lifestyle magazine that you enjoy.

As always, thank you for reading and for your continued support. We really do appreciate it!
