NOTICE TO ALL EVENT SUBMITTERS:
The Sun is revising the calendar events for both online and print. All events must be entered through our website. It's easy. Go to www.yoursun.com and click on the "Community Calendar" link on the left. Click "Submit Event," and fill out the appropriate information. The "Content for print edition" area of the form is for information intended for the print edition of the paper. Information outside of the this area will appear online only. Please don't repeat the "Event Title" as that will be included automatically.
We will print a maximum of four lines per event (the Event Title plus 34 characters for the next three lines, to be included in the "Content for print edition" field) at no cost to the event submitter. This change will give our readers a broader range of community events.
You may, however, request additional space for a small fee. Please
If you do not have the ability to enter your events via our website, we can type them in on your behalf at the rate of $5 per event, per community (this fee does not guarentee placement in any print products.
Be sure to review the GUIDELINES to help ensure you get the most information in without exceeding the line limit.
