The Ponte Vedra Recorder is planning a keepsake 50-year anniversary edition Nov. 7.
We are excited about celebrating 50 wonderful years of serving the community. And we would like readers to get involved by sharing your memories, stories and photos of happenings in Ponte Vedra Beach from 1969, when the paper was published, to the present.
What did the area look like back then? Where did you go to school? Where did you shop? Where did you go out to eat? Which beach did you head to for a swim in the sea?
If you were lucky enough to live here in 1969, what chapter of life were you in? Send us school photos, wedding pictures, grinning -little-kid-on-the-beach pictures. Tell us what sports activities you were involved in, where you hung out, what type of clothes you wore, and where.
For lifelong residents, what changes through the years strike you as the most notable? What has changed for the better? What was better back then?
For newcomers, tell us why you now call this area home. Because the memories you are making today will be interesting to people in the future.
Email your photos and memories to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Cheers to 50 years” in the subject line. Thank you!
