About The Smoke Signal

The Smoke Signal began in 1968 and remains to this day a community newspaper created, written and produced by volunteer neighbors for neighbors.


This 12 page monthly publication is packed with news about our neighbors, schools, clubs, churches as well as a number of feature columns.  We would love to have any Smoke Rise neighbor be a contributor or to join our staff.  Contact one of our editors for more information.
