The first issue of the Fairfield Harbour Beacon published in 1978, and it has continued publishing monthly to date. The newspaper’s listed purpose:

The Beacon is the official newspaper of the Fairfield Harbour Property Owners Association, and is published monthly by a volunteer staff. The purpose of the Beacon is to provide a communication medium for POA members, the POA Board and its committees, and Fairfield Harbour clubs and organizations. The Beacon serves the community by publishing material that informs, contributes to the safety, harmony, and general welfare of the community, and promotes property owner awareness and involvement in community affairs.
