To Post Events
Go to "Add an Event." Tell us all the details about your upcoming event, then click "Post my Event" at the bottom of the page.
That puts the event on our calendar. You can edit, change, update as needed. Also, feel free to email me (the local editor) to alert me to your event.
To Post Announcements
Go to the Add an Announcement form. Once there, tell the community all about your child's sports league victory or your civic club’s new members. When you’re ready, click "Publish My Announcement" and it will go live to the site immediately.
With just a few clicks, you can tell the town when you get married, have a baby, graduate or make the dean's list. Have you been promoted or have a milestone anniversary coming up? Share it and upload a photo, too!
You can also write a public thank you, provide details about your group's upcoming event, publish a political news release or ask for volunteers.
