This is our newsletter archive. MDCA’s first newsletters, in 2012, were 2 pages, twice per year. In Fall 2013 we expanded to a 4-page format supported by ads from local businesses, organizations and our elected representatives. In 2015 we began issuing three newsletters a year, and starting that fall, increased the length to 8 pages.
In 2017, we started to present two versions, a fast loading but low res version ideal for phones and browsers, and a high quality version as used by our typesetter, and great if you want to print the images or show them with a projector.
Our newsletter now reaches more than 7,000 local mailboxes, houses, apartments, and businesses, as well as being available on-line! The rate for ads is currently $110 per 1/12th page, per issue. Our local printer is Nirvana Press on Industry Street. Articles are written by MDCA Board members (and occasionally by others in the community).
We welcome feedback about our community newsletters, and we encourage ALL local residents to support our local businesses and organizations – especially those whose advertisements make the newsletters possible!
