Alberni Valley News launches new online community calendar

Got an event you want people to know about in the Alberni Valley and beyond? Check out our new online community calendar feature.

The Alberni Valley News has launched a new online community calendar on our website, at www.albernivalleynews.com.

This one is definitely different than the original version that was rolled out a couple of years ago. It’s so much easier to use, both for people wanting to submit an event and those looking for things to do in the Alberni Valley.

The new calendar requires no login or password, and the form to submit an item is easy to use. You can designate where you wish the calendar item to appear within the region’s Black Press B.C. family of websites.

You can also spread the word about your event to Facebook and Twitter from our calendar.

It’s free, of course. There’s even a spot for an image, say a rehearsal photo from a high school play, or some cool artwork from your event poster..

Someone here in the Alberni Valley News newsroom will check each item before it posts just to make sure it complies with our simple guidelines, which lead off the submission form. The calendar is ideal for events, but not so much for business-oriented or garage sales. We have print and online classified ad sections that are more suitable for those types of listings.

Our online calendar is a great way to create buzz about your organization or your event.

And, did we mention it’s easy to use?
