Send us your springtime events and The Sun will help spread the word

We want to help spread the word about these events to the entire community.

As the saying goes, spring has sprung. And with that come the usual events and activities associated with the arrival of the time of year people can safely leave the warmth of their homes without being bundled up in bulky winter clothing.      

It’s also the time of year many schools, churches, municipalities and groups hold fun, exciting events. Over the past few weeks, The Sun has been bringing you a list of many of the upcoming festivities. But there will be many more, we know that, and we want to help spread the word about these events to the entire community.

Spring is a time of school musical performances, opening baseball and softball games, proms and graduation preparation. Benefit car washes will make a return. It’s also Easter, of course, and that means not only Easter egg hunts, but also appearances by a very special bunny.

To help get the word out – and attendance up – with these events, we need your help. If you are a member of a group holding a spring event that’s open to the entire community, we’d love to hear from you.

Want to encourage attendance? Shoot us an email with all of the information a couple of weeks before the event occurs, and we’ll do our best to get it in the paper and online so everyone can see it.

Want a little publicity after the event? We have a small news staff, so we can’t provide coverage at every community happening. So, if you have a decent camera, take a few photos of the action and send them our way.

The best way to send us any information is through the email address at the right. Please include contact information in case we have any questions.

It’s time to put away the snow shovels and boots and to break out the shorts and sandals. It’s also time to enjoy the many happenings in and around town during spring.

We want to make this spring a fun time for everyone. Help us do that by allowing us to promote your upcoming event or by celebrating its success after the fact through photos.
