Community Calendar - What Do You Think?

by The Publishers
February 25, 2019

Yvette and I are thinking of adding a new weekly feature to the Holliston Reporter.  We want your input.

Our idea is to expand the community service aspect of HollistonReporter.com by publishing a calendar of community events each Monday morning.  We receive many press releases and e-mails alerting us to upcoming activities that should be publicized to our audience.  There are other calendars accessible on-line (school sports, government meetings, etc) and we hope to supplement those with this idea.

This effort is to support non-profit or not-for-profit groups and their fund-raising / charitable efforts.  Commercial events can certainly be advertised on HollistonReporter.com for a very low price.

We are willing to give this idea a try for the month of March to see how it works for everyone - knowing that you can't please all the people all the time.

We have some questions for you: (Please respond to Pubs.holliston.reporter@gmail.com)

  • What format: monthly calendar; weekly list; both?

  • What types of events / activities do you think fit our goal of supporting community groups? 

  • What else should be considered?

We look forward to hearing your thoughts.  Chris and Yvette
