Cheers to 50 Years!

Muscle cars and the Ponte Vedra Recorder


The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is arguably one of most desirable muscle cars ever built. What were you driving in 1969?

What were milestone events in your life? Were you born or married in ’69? Maybe you started a business or work for a company that opened its doors that year.

The Ponte Vedra Recorder first hit the streets in 1969 and your community paper wants to share its 50th celebration. Send us your stories and photographs sharing memories about 1969. How much was your rent or mortgage payment? What do you remember about Ponte Vedra, Palm Valley or the surrounding area? Did you really swim in the ditch?

Where did you go to school and what was it like? Send us your school pictures. Tell us about your favorite music, fashion, sports or recreation. Where did you hang out and why?

For lifetime residents, what has changed? What changes made living in the area better or worse? For newcomers, what made you call this home?

Send your photographs and memories to with “Cheers to 50 years” in the subject line.
