Throughout the prolonged course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff of the Pelham Examiner continued to write about daily changes in all our lives for more than a year. The stories on the website shifted to a much wider scale, as our small town became a part of an international crisis. The staff wanted to take the chance to reflect on the past year and a half, and, perhaps, reinstate a much needed change of pace—the time to sit and read and consider.

With all that in mind, we are pleased to announce publication of the first ever Pelham Examiner print edition.

The paper includes includes stories about two senior classes which had to withstand hardships they could never have imagined and Pelham healthcare workers who experienced the awful tragedies of Covid-19 as part of their jobs. There is an underlying theme: Pelham worked together as a community to pull through times of strain and loss. With a tagline “a month in the life of the town,” the print edition also includes coverage of current news, including a new fire chief, the town board race in the fall and construction projects moving forward. There’s even a puzzle page.

The paper was printed Monday at Southern Dutchess News in Wappingers Falls. Future editions will depend on the community’s reception. Look for an announcement later in the summer.

The Pelham Examiner debuted online in June 2018, leading with high school graduation. Since then, the paper has experienced so much support from its readers and the town. Thank you to all who made this print edition of the Examiner possible—and happy reading!
