It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the end of the Putnam Traveler Newspaper after 17 years in publication. We have truly enjoyed offering the community a wonderful publication that was supportive of the events, businesses and people of northeastern Connecticut. We also enjoyed meeting so many local business owners, many who have become our very good friends. We would like to thank our amazing team including our writers: Cris Cadiz, Nancy Weiss, Caroline Sloat and Kathy Naumann; our printer Carmel Osterlund at 101 Business Solutions, our distributor Charlie Harrington at Laser Letter Shop, and the Putnam Economic Development Office.
