Our Mission: To build a sense of community throughout the town of Suffield and to provide a forum where all sides of issues may be addressed.

Our Organization: The Observer is written by, for and about the people of Suffield. We are an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organization seeking to provide information and news about the town of Suffield.

Donations: There is no charge for the Observer, but we welcome donations to help pay for our rent, printing and mailing costs.

Advertisers: To advertise in The Suffield Observer, contact our advertising manager, at 860-668-7442, and we will be glad to help. We thank our advertisers for their support. We feel strongly that one way to build a sense of community is to support our local businesses.

Letters to the Editor/OpEds:  The Observer does not accept letters to the editor/OpEds that could be considered: libelous, slanderous, which attack the personal character of an individual or which are lacking in civility. We do accept letters/OpEds that are factual and contribute to discussions of interest to the community. We also want to print a balance of all sides of an issue. Letters should not exceed 250 words, OpEds should not exceed 500 words, with only one letter /OpEd per writer being published in a three-month period. We do not accept political Letters to the Editor.
Any editorial/column critical of a public official or public body needs to be received by the 12th of the month so the criticized individual or public body can respond in the same issue of the paper.

Business Articles: The Suffield Observer does not accept articles written by owners of a business that could be considered self-serving. Advertising space is available for such purposes. We do welcome articles of general interest to the community.

Political Ads: In the interest of maintaining a level playing field, we accept no political ads but do print at election time a Suffield Voters Guide with input from the local candidates.

Stories: We look forward to stories on community issues or topics which would contribute to the benefit of residents of the community. Please contact an editor at 860-668-7442 to become a writer. Contributions include poetry, community interest articles, short stories, personal profiles, etc.

Suggestions: We are a volunteer organization and we truly welcome suggestions that would improve the newspaper.Office
