Promoting Your Events…
This seems like a good time to remind you that the newspaper Mainely Agriculture runs a sponsored column of Grange news plucked from your Maine State Grange website. In several recent issues that column included some of the events you’ve posted here, so you may be getting even more promotion than you thought! And for those who know the editor and publisher, Wally Sinclair, we’re thrilled to learn in the most recent issue that he has beaten his battle with cancer.
Another opportunity for promotion… the developer of the website Non-profit Eats — Great Meals for Great Causes tells me he gets lots of traffic from people searching for meals to attend but not enough listings! Check out the site; make sure you submit your complete information whenever you are having a public meal.
Christmas is Coming!
I know you didn’t want to reminded… but there’s still time to get your “Christmas Greeting” for five bucks. We’ve tried to make the process as easy as possible… but it does require a little on your part!
Christmas also usually means events… breakfasts with Santa, craft fairs… please submit your events NOW and avoid the rush! Remember that it can take several days for me to get events posted–it really doesn’t make sense to send information a day or two before the event. First, it may not make it on the site. Second, if it does there’s not much time for folks to find it.
